Rushing Season 



No. 6 

Student Faculty 
Reception Climax 
To Freshman Week 


Music and Speeches In Chapel 
Followed By Dance In 

To the class of 1938 Freshman Week 
brought memories and fantastical reve- 
ries that will never be forgotten. It was 
a week full of fun, gaiety, romance, plen- 
ty of it for some frosh, and royal recep- 

Wednesday, September 19, ushered in 
the majority of new students, vivacious 
and eager to make a pleasant and effec- 
tive beginning of their college career. 
After taking the greater part of the day 
to become acclimated to their new sur- 
roundings, the little "green" folks were 
entertained in the evening at a freshmen 
fellowship— the men in the Y. M. C. A. 
rooms and the girls in North Hall parlor. 
The chief purpose of the meetings was to 
help them to get acquainted with school 
songs and traditions, as well as each 
other. Judging from the hilarity and smi- 
ling faces, one would say that the meet- 
ings were a great success. 

President Clyde A. Lynch opened up 
the Thursday chapter with his address of 
welcome and presentation of 'he faculty. 
Following this, Professor S. H. Derick- 
son spoke on the "Historical Traditions 
of the College." Nor could the day be 
quite complete without orientation tests 
which each incoming class seems to en- 
joy more than the preceding one! An- 
other main event of the day was the 
complimentary, informal dinner given in 
honor of the freshmen, with the president, 
faculty, and wives receiving. After a 
most delectable meal, Professor E. P. 
Rutledge did his part in aiding the new- 
comers overcome their bashfulness by 
leading in a few songs. 

Again they went to the chapel on Fri- 
day morning to take a more tests 
an d still more tests. The afternoon found 
them busily engaged in the hnrary learn- 
In 9 ev ery nook and corner of it, presum- 
ably so they would know where to find 
an ideal place to study. Despite the 
hanging weather, the Y. M. C. A. and 

' W> C. A. hike was a fitting close to 
tn e day. Clever harmonizing with the 
n °ble assistance of some of the upper 
^assmen, tricky games, refreshments, and 
Walk home in the moonless night 
made up the program, 
k f '''I another chapter and what a chap- 
er Dr. L. G. Bailey began the Saturday

Fall Band Rehearsals 

Promising Outlook 

The college band has had several suc- 
cessful rehearsals, and so far, the outlook 
for the year is very promising. Weak 
places, made by graduating members, 
have been filled and new additions have 
been made. In other words, the band is 
better than it ever was, both in quantity 
and quality. However, it is to be under- 
stood that the graduates of last year are 
greatly missed. 

The problem confronting the band is a 
means of transportation to the football 
games. There is a possibility of the band, 
going to every one of them, something 
that could not be done in former years. 
Practically all of the local transportation 
companies have been contacted, but so 
far, no satisfactory arrangements have 
been reached. Certainly, no one on the 
campus should have to be told of the im- 
portance of the college band going to the 
games. So, if any one has any idea or 
ideas, it would be greatly appreciated if 
they would be submitted to Prof. Rut- 
ledge or any number of the band. Boost 
the band, it is one of the prides of the 

Kryl and Symphony

A great treat is in store for all the 
music-lovers of the campus when Kryl 
and his symphony band will present a 
program in chapel, Thursday morning, 
October 11. 

Bohumir Kryl, who is known as "the 
most remarkable cornetist in the world" 
and "the unrivaled band conductor," will 
bring three soloists with him^Catherine 
Reiner, soprano; Mode Caslova, violin- 
'ste; and Irma Clow, harpiste. All arc 
well-known in the music world both here 
and abroad. 

This symphony band is now opening 
its thirtieth consecutive season, during 
which period it has given over twelve 
thousand concerts and has traveled over 
one million miles. Kryl and his band have 
given concerts in more than one hundred 
colleges and universities annually. 

The program as arranged:

Windsor " — Nicolal 
Harp Solo— Irma Clow.

Delta Lambda Sigma opened her doors 
to the new students on Wednesday, Sep- 
tember 26. Delphian extended a cordial 
welcome to the new women students of 
the college by holding a tea in their 
honor. The tea was held in Delphian 
Hall, and all the new women students 
were guests of honor. The guests were 
delightfully entertained by an informal 
musical program and thoroughly en- 
joyed a delicious repast, prepared by 
Sarah Lupton and her committee. 

Mrs. Derickson and Miss Kenyon, di- 
rector of physical training, poured, and 
the sophomore Delphians served. A num- 
ber of the faculty and faculty wives were 
present. The president of the society was

College Couple Wed 

By Dr. Clyde Lynch 

A wedding of unusual interest to the 
student body of L. V. C. took place Au- 
gust 7, 1934, at the home of Dr. Clyde 

A. Lynch when Miss Margaret Holmes 
Early, '34, a talented musician and for- 
mer outstanding conservatory student, 
became the bride of Dr. L. G. Bailey, 
associate professor of education and psy- 
chology. The ring ceremony was per- 

Immediately after the wedding the 
couple left on an extended motor tour of 
the south, including Charleston, N. C, 
Savannah, Ga., Jacksonville, Fla., and 
various seaport cities. They are now at 
home in their newly furnished home at 
403 East Main street, Annville. 

The bride graduated from L. V. in 
June, receiving a cum laude degree of 

B. S. in music. She was among the hon- 
ored few of the May court, a popular 
member of the Clionian Literary Society, 
and associate editor of last year's Quit-

Hedgerow Players 
Present "Inheritors" 


Twelfth Successful Season Is 
Opened By America's Larg- 
est Repertory Theatre 

Lebanon Valley is privileged in hav- 
ing the opportunity of attending a drama 
presented by the famous Hedgerow The- 
atre of Philadelphia in the Conservatory 
on Friday afternoon, October 12. The 
drama to be presented is "Inheritors" by 
Susan Glaspell. The name Hedgerow 
was given to the group by the now fa- 
mous Ann Harding. When a sheriff, no 
lover of drama, threatened to evict the 
players among whom were Deeter, Car- 
novsky, Kirkland, Miss Harding, and 
many others of fame, Miss Harding ex- 
claimed, "Very well, if we are forced out 
of the theatre, we can go under the hedge- 
rows." "That's a swell name," Deeter 
declared, and the Hedgerow Theatre it 
has remained ever since. 

Now the largest repertory theatre in 
America, and the second largest in the 
world with over 108 plays in its active 
repertory, and fifty actors on its staff, it 
has given over 1900 performances. At 
the present time the Hedgerow Theatre 
is embarking on a tour of fifteen states 
with four plays from its repertory to 
continue its twelfth and most successful 
season. The idea of repertory, the keep- 
ing alive of many plays over a number 
of years, is not new, but the Hedgerow 
has proved the practicality of this actor's 
system in America. Some of the plays 
given that first year are still active down 
in Rose Valley, outside Philadelphia. 

The Hedgerow has given over 200 
performances of 32 plays this year, and 
there have been 24 world premiers of 
plays at the Hedgerow. Such reviewers 
as J. B. Atkinson of the New York Times, 
Robert Garland of the New York World 
Telegram, and all the Philadelphia dra- 
matic reviewers make it a point to attend 
and criticize opening performances. In- 
variably the criticisms turn out to be col- 
umns of praise and honor to this unique 
theatre group. Undoubtedly no American 
theatre has received so much space and

Session Greets 
Freshmen Guests 


La Vie Reporter Interviews 
Mr. Frank Buck; Exhibi- 
tion Follows 

The Clionian and the Philokosmian 
Literary Societies opened the school 
year's activities in Philo Hall on Friday 
evening with one of their well-formed 
joint sessions. As guests of the societies 
vanous faculty members, friends, and 
ihe new freshmen class attended. Quite 
an amrs'ng program had been arranged 
by the committees. Mr. Lester Krone, 
Philo's executive committee chairman and 
master of ceremonies, first introduced 
Clio's songster, Miss Gayle Mountz. 
Gayle sang very charmingly two old fa- 
vorites, "Just a Wearin' for You" and 
"The Desert Song." She was accompa- 
nied on the piano by Miss Grace Naugle. 

Next Miss Alma Cline, cunning little- 
girl impersonator, fittingly bedecked in 
romper dress and big hair ribbon, re- 
counted the thrilling adventures of "The 
Mother of Little Maud and Little Maud." 
Following this unsophisticated little maid 
was a highly finished performance by the 
Philo quartet^including Messrs. Hutner, 
Krone, Shaeffer, and Harnish. I ll Sing 
You a Song of Colleges," "I' Been Work- 
in' on the Railroad," and lastly the Alma 

The zenith in the evening's entertain- 
ment was the securing of Frank Buck, of 
"Bring 'Em Back Alive" fame, to speak to 
the group and to introduce some of his 
trophies. Preceding his address Mr. 
George Hiltner, newspaperman, inter- 
viewed Mr. Buck for the La Vie Col- 
legienne. Many will be surprised to learn 
that Mr. Buck is so versatile. Prized by 
him as much as any jungle gems are the 
honors he received in a beauty contest as 
well as a loving cup won in a dancing 
event. The explorer's life according to 
his account to the La Vie reporter has 
been packed with thrilling adventures and 
unusual experiences. Since the majority 
of people had already seen much of his 
animal collection Mr. Buck brought with 
him rather some strange human creatures 
he had captured. One, a wild jungle 
man impersonated by Guy Beaver, had 
been taught with great difficulty by Mr. 
Buck to speak the English language. 
Henpecked husbands exist even among 
barbarious peoples so Allen Steffy as the 
spouse and Homer Kendall as "her" hus- 
band indicated. Finally, Mr. Buck showed

As a fitting close to the activities of 
Freshman Week, the new students were 
given an opportunity to become acquaint- 
ed with the various members of the fac- 
ulty in their homes on Sunday, Septem- 
ber 23. About twenty-five freshmen, es- 
corted by members of the "Y" cabinets, 
made the tour which lasted from 3:00 to 
5:00 P. M., allowing them a brief visit 
at each home. The following faculty 
homes were visited: Dr. Lynch, Dr. 
Wagner, Miss Myers, Prof. Rutledge, 
Dr. Butterwick, Dr. Wallace, Dr. Ben- 
der, Prof. Carmean, Dr. Derickson, Dr. 
Richie, Dr. Shenk, Dr. Reynolds, Dr. 
Stonecipher, Prof. Gingrich, and Dr. 
Jones, past pastor of the college church.

THURSDAY, OCT. 4, 1934 


Greetings gentle readers, lovely fresh- 
men, and college brutes. By this time 
most of us are vitally aware that camp- 
us activities have been resumed again— 
classes have begun in earnest, new green 
faces are flitting about, familiar counte- 
nances have returned— and the fall pro- 
gram begins. One must cast aside his 
vacation program of a free and easy life 
and in its place take up the new study- 
covered one, assume the dignity of a 
senior—the superiority of a junior— the 
insignificance of a sophomore— or the 
importance of a freshman. If our college 
aim is the pursuit of culture, a coat of 
varnish to the high school wood, then 
let this year mark a new era in the suc- 
cessful attempts towards this end. If our 
prime motive is a good time, then noth- 
ing can be done about it— rather let us 
aim a little higher, and an enjoyable col- 
lege year will just naturally creep into 
existence. Now is the time to renew our 
book acquaintances and actually buckle 
down to a year of faithful hard work. 
The faculty reins seem annually to be 
drawing tighter, thus making necessary 
an added amount of individual student 
perseverance. In order to raise the stand- 
ards of our Alma Mater it is necessary to 
raise its requirements and make our 
school not just the dumping ground for 
every Tom, Dick, and Harry who wants 
a college degree with ease and no effort, 
but a sought-after institution from which 
we will be proud to say we have gradu- 


The student body is especially inter- 
ested at the beginning of the year to 
learn the whereabouts and the doings of 
the members of the latest gtaduating 
class. This year the interest rests on the 
class of '34. Some of the graduates are 
continuing their studies. Allen Buzzell 
and Henry McFaul are studying law at 
the University of Maryland. Mitchell 
Jordan, John J. Light, and Richard 
Schreiber are studying medicine at the 
University of Pennsylvania. Joseph Gil- 
bert is taking up surgery at Johns Hop- 
kins University. Edmund Umberger is 
also attending Johns Hopkins. Luke 
Remley is a student at Jefferson Medical 
College, while George Derickson, D. 

Dwight Grove, and George Klitch are 
attending Hahnemann Medical College. 

J. Allen Ranck is a student at Bone- 
brake Theological Seminary with C. 
Melvin Hitz. Thomas May is studying 
at the Reformed Seminary at Lancaster 
and Kenneth Edwards at Princeton The- 
ological Seminary. 

Paul Deimler is clerk at the Farmer 
Bank, Hummelstown. Lester Reed is 
chemist at the Lebanon Steel Foundry, 
and John Sloat is chemist for the Klein 
Chocolate Co. at Elizabethtown, Pa. 

T. J. Barnhart is pastor of the United 
Brethren church at Hershey. Grant Um- 
berger is preaching at Bainbridge, Pa. 

Peter Kandrat is teaching at Union 
N. J. Kathryn Mowrey at New Cum- 
berland, and Mary Gossard at Hershey. 
Dewitt Essick is teaching History at 
Cochranville, Pa., Margaret Kohler, 
French, and Ruth Anna Mark, English, 
at Hagerstown High, Md. Leonard Vol- 
kin is science teacher and coach at Mt. 
Pleasant, Pa. Kathryn Witmer is teach- 
er and librarian at Hershey. Clyde 
Mentzer is doing substitute teaching at 
Ephrata. Robert Womer is working at 
the Lebanon Concentration Plant. 

Catherine Heckman is music supervi- 
sor at Highspire, Pa. 

From the Extension Department are 
Naomi Bair, teaching at Harrisburg; Ed- 
ward Keiper at Harrisburg, and Martha 
Wall in the public schools of Harrisburg. 
Mary Lehman and Edna Kreider are 
teaching at Lebanon, and Anna Imach- 
weiler is music supervisor at Tremont. 

To these alumni and all others L. V. 
wishes the best of luck and success! 

Lebanon Valley College loses a good 
friend indeed in the death of John H. 
Maysilles, of the class of- 1895, at his 
home at Grafton, West Virginia, on Au- 
gust 22. 

He was for many years a trustee of th- 
college and took an active interest in its 

A few years after completing his work 
at Lebanon Valley he graduated from the 
engineering school of Purdue University, 
and as head expert for a long time at the 
American Locomotive Works, Schenec- 
tady, N. Y., he was recognized as one of 
the greatest American scientists in steam 
locomotive engineering. For the past ten 
years or more he has been in the engi- 
neering business at Grafton. 

He was a leader in the religious and 
civic life of his community, and his loss 
will be greatly felt there.

attention from magazine and feature 
writers as has Jasper Deeter and his 
Hedgerow. The reason for that is be- 
cause of its activity and sincerity of per- 
formance's. Often compared to Shakes- 
peare's Old Globe Theatre, which also 
was an actor's theatre, the Hedgerow has 
given many performances of Shakes- 
peare, and just as the Old Globe, devel- 
oped numerous young playwrights such 
as ONeifl, Glaspell, Riggs and Paul 

Lebanon Valley has a rare treat to pre- 
sent to its students, and none should 
miss the opportunity to witness what will 
undoubtedly be a sterling performance 
by this group of players. The cast of 
"Inheritors" is as follows: 

Smith David Metcalf 

Grandmother Morton ....Mable Sheppard 

Felix Fejivary, 1st Ferd Nofer 

Silas Morton Jasper Deeter 

Senator Lewis Harry Sheppard 

Horace Sol Jacobson

On To State and Victory 

Two of the steadiest and sturdiest football men in Lebanon Valley's history 
have been chosen to lead the 1934 eleven. Co-Captain Charles "Smoky" Rust is 
a triple-threat back, a Ipng and accurate punter, an efficient passer, and a shifty 
and herd-driving carrier. Co-Captain Bill Smith has been for two years a tower 
of :trength at his post at end. "Smitty" weighs 187 pounds and in addition to his 
ability as a linesman possesses unusual placement-kicking technique. 

L. V. C. Gridders 
Open With State 


Probab'e Starters Announced ; 
Hopes High For Lebanon 
Valley Victory 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen 
are all set to swoop down upon Penn 
State's Nittany Lions on Saturday— set 
to skin them alive in the eighteenth re- 
newal of the ancient grid feud. 

Head Coach Jerry Frock and his as- 
sistant, Chief Metoxen, have molded a 
squad of thirty-five footballers into a very 
formidable band indeed, using as a nuc- 
leus ten of last year's lettermen. 

The probable starting lineup presents: 
Broun, L.E., Bartolet, L.T., Coda Spon- 
augle, L.G., Sincavage, C-, Furlong, R.- 
G., Baugher, R.T., Smith, R.E., Rust, 
Q.B., Feeser, L.H., Sheesley, R.H., and 
Whiting F.B. This list includes eight of 
last year's letter men and a veteran of 
the 1931 eleven, Danny Bartolet, who 
has returned to college after two years' 

This backfield averages 166 pounds. 
Ross Sheesley, sophomore sensation from 
Harrisburg in his first year in the Blue 
and White, will be the only newcomer 
behind the line. "Scoop" Feeser, "Smo- 
ky" Rust and "Sully" Whiting are all 
seasoned veterans who need no introduc- 
tion to Lebanon Valley fans after their 
1933 exploits. 

Daniel Broun, another sophomore, is 
the sole lineman who dons Valley togs 

for the first time as a varsity performer. 
The line averages 180 pounds, "Bill" 
Smith being the heaviest, 187. Galen 
Baugher, 170-pound right tackle, is the 
lightest man on the line. 

The Flying Dutchmen have in reserve 
a wealth of capable replacements. Ricker 
and Rozman, tackles; B. Sponaugle, Kli- 
pa, and Davies, guards; Kroske, center; 
Crook and Seaks, ends, and Patrizio, Za- 
vada, Carchidi, and Tindajl, backs, are 
expected to see plenty of action. A com- 
plete list of the members of the football 
squad and some valuable statistics ap- 
pear elsewhere on this sport page. 

Saturday's encounter will be the eigh- 
teenth meeting of the two teams, the 
State-L. V. C. gridiron rivalry dating 
back to 1905. Before 1920 only four en- 
gagements were played, but since then, 
Lebanon Valley has met the Nittany 
Lions annually. In the seventeen past 
meetings, State has compiled a total of 
580 points to 34 for the Flying Dutch- 
men and has always been victorious, 

The most notable struggle was that of 
1925, when the Lions barely won out, 
14-6. Other close battles were the 1915 
game, 13-0; the 1929 game, 15-0; and the 
1931 game, 19-6. Most of State's 32 
points last year were rolled up in the 
last quarter, so that the 32-6 score really 
docs not show with what difficulty the 
1933 Lions defeated the 1933 Valleyites. 

Latest reports inform us that the band 
is going to make the trip to State Col- 
lege in full array, and a large part of 
the student body is planning to witness 
the struggle. A sense of victory grips 
the Lebanon Valley campus and a glori- 
ous struggle— perhaps another memorable 
victory for the Blue and 'White sports 
annals— is anticipated. 

Sport Shots C 

On Sunday those who see servi c> 
against Penn State will be proudly fc< 
playing their new Nittany Lionskin rug. 

Perhaps Philo should loan L 0u j, 
"Frank Buck" Straub to the football er , 
to help bring back the Lions alive. 

What a collection of freaks the eleve n 
will have before the season closes! J t 
might be well to start a menagerie wj^ 
the captured Nittany Lions, Muhlenberg 
Mules, Drexel Dragons, Juniata Indians 
and Albright Lions. Nice tame lot, not 

Although the coming battle between 
Lebanon Valley and Penn State is the 
opener for both schools, six of Lebanon 
Valley's later-reason opponents have al- 
ready begun hostilities. 

Muhlenberg was dealt a surprise de- 
feat Friday night in their op?n?r. We-.t 
Chester's Teachers, not even considered 
.stiff opposition for the Mules, emerged 
victorious by a 9-0 score. 

Drexel and Juniata, both on Valley's 
1934 schedule, opposed each other last 
Saturday in their curtain raiser. The 
Dragons scored early in the game and 
were never overtaken, winning, 6-0. 

The University of Delaware has not 
opened its season as yet, but St. Joseph's 
Colleg?, slated to furnish Homecoming 
Day opposition on November 10, was 
oundly trounced by Holy Cross, 51-0. 
This by no means shows any particular 
weakness on the part of the St. Joe grid- 
sters, for the Holy Cross outfit is always 
one of the better college teams of the east. 

Albright was tossed aside by Franklin 
and Marshall without much apparent dif- 
ficulty, the score being 31-6. Neverthe- 
less, this score cannot cause too much 
rejoicing on the L. V. campus, for last 
year the Lions were seemingly an in- 
ferior outfit, yet rose to the heights to 
hold L. V. C. to a 6-6 tie. 

Pennsylvania Military College has an- 
other strong eleven this year. In their 
first contest the Cadets, with a 
veteran backfield starring "Reds" Pol' 
lock, showed plenty of power in holding 
Rutgers to a scoreless tie.

What ho! The class of '37 is again 
victorious. Once more the banners of 
'37 dominate the halls of L. V. C. This 
is all through the perseverance of the 
sophomore class. 

The freshmen stood a rather slim 
chance against the veteran fiag pole 
climbers, wash line stringers, and win- 
dow painters. The freshmen seemed to 
vanish from the campus almost complete-, 
ly until a rather late hour. When they 
returned they found themselves unorga- 
nized and somewhat defeated, but they 
seemed to remember that "a winner nev- 
cv quits and a quitter never wins,' 'so 
they went after the sophomores tooth and 

The scrap lasted for far into the night, 
and through 'til early morning. The par-l 
ticipants scaled buildings, painted side- 
walks and windows, and gave vent to 
their pugilistic instinct. 

Finally about five or six o'clock the 
defense and offense dispersed, leaving 
the battle field covered with debris, and 
many very prominent '37's. Three cheers 
for the sophomores!!!

30 th Anniversary 
Carnegie Library 


Reba F. Lehman First Lebanon 
Valley Librarian; Library Gets 
12,500 Volumes Since 1904 

This year marks the thirtieth anniverr 
sary of the laying of the corner stone of 
Carnegie Library. There is an interest- 
ing story as to how Dr. Roop, then presi- 
dent of Lebanon Valley College, man- 
aged to contact Andrew Carnegie, thus 
making it possible to obtain the funds 
necessary to the building of the library. 
The story is as follows: At the time. W. 
B. Allison of Iowa was a leader in the 
U. S. Senate and a close friend of Car- 
negie. Bishop Kephart, of the United 
Brethren church, was a member of the 
Iowa State Senate during the time of 
Allison's election to the U. S. Senate. It 
was Rephart who gave the deciding vote 
in favor of Allison. 

Dr. Roop, a son-in-law to Bishop Kep- 
hart, made his contact with Carnegie 
through Kephart and Allison. The funds 
were gotten and the library was built. 
On the day of dedication, in the fall of 
1905, the principal speakers were the 
Hon. Henry Hauck, superintendent of 
the Department of Public Instruction, 
later secretary of Internal Affairs, and 
Dr. Thomas Lynch Montgomery, State 
Librarian of Pennsylvania. 

As far as is known, Carnegie Library 
is one of the first to be donated to a col- 
lege by that great philanthropist. Up to 
that time, this type of philanthropy was 
customary only in the setting up of mu- 
nicipal libraries in towns and cities. 

The library as an institution was 
rounded in 1867 at a public meeting of 
teachers and students. In this meeting, a 
committee of three was appointed to es- 
tablish a library. This committee suc- 
ceeded in collecting 100 books and $83- 
.39 in cash to be used in buying more 
books. Prior to this, the Y. M. C. A.. 
Y. W. C. A., and the literary societies 
had the only group-owned libraries on 
the campus. When the new library build- 
ing was opened, these organizations do- 
nated their libraries. 

The corner stone was laid in 1904, and 
the building was completed and opened 
for use in the fall of 1905. The first li- 
brarian was Reba F.Lehman who served 
for two years. Following in order were: 
Will E. Herr, Roy Guyer, and R. M. 
Kirkland. Mr. Kirkland donated a valu- 
able classical library. These three men 
held the position between the years 1906 
and 1914. It was on the latter date that 
Reba F. Lehman, after taking a library 
training course, returned to take the posi- 
tion as the first trained librarian. Miss 
Myers succeeded Miss Lehman in 1921 
and has held the position ever since. 

The most notable group donations to 
the library are: Class of 1902, about 
$300; Class of 1904, a number of volumes 
on American History; Class of 1916, an 
endowment fund of $1,225; and the 
alumni association has from time to time 
contributed money for the binding of 

The most notable individual donations 
are: the Daniel Eberly collection on phi- 
losophy and religion, Benjamin Beerman 
and Nehemiah Altman libraries, a $1000 
contribution from Mr. A. K. Nulls and 
his sister, Mrs. Gerberick, and books from 
R. R. Butterwick. Incidently, Profes- 
sor Butterwick has contributed more 
books than any other single donor. 

Through the thirty years, the library 
has grown from about 4000 volumes at 
the time of the opening of the building, 
to 16,302 according to the latest entries. 

Green Terrace Scene 

Of Senate Banquet 

The Men's Senate thoroughly enjoyed 
a get-together banquet held Monday 
night at the Green Terrace. The hungry 
Senators made quick work of a delicious 
steak dinner. 

President Lynch in a brief talk out- 
lined the task before the Senate and 
pledged his hearty cooperation in an or- 
ganized effort to make college life an 
ideal one. 

Several business items of the utmost 
importance were discussed and held over 
pending further investigation. 

The Senate was glad to hear definite 
word that Frank Boran, president of that 
body, will soon be back at Lebanon Val- 
ley. In the meantime the president's du- 
ties are being very capably performed by 
Vice President William Smith.

a half-man-half-animal creature (Miller 
Schmuch) he had brought home with 
him. These three exhibits of course were 
highly informative and well received by 
the guests. 

Two musical numbers concluded the 
entertainment, with Miss Nancy Bow- 
man as accompanist. Mr. Robert Scheir- 
er played a most amusing novelty num- 
ber on the bassoon. As an encore he used 
the lovely melody of "Drink to Me Only 
with Thine Eyes." Miss Helen Summy, 
too, chose well-loved melodies. In her 
own inimicable way she sang "Song of 
Love" and "Love Sends a Little Gift of 

The hall was beautifully decorated in 
the white and gold of Clio and the blue 
and gold of Philo. For the next hour the 
guests seated in small groups at card ta- 
bles indulged in conversation as well as 
the delicious refreshments. 

The group retired finally to the hand- 
somely decorated gymnasium where to 
the unique arrangements of Jack Schuler 
and his Blue and White Collegians the 
too short hours were soon danced away. 

All those willing to learn to dance may 
follow this form. 

Position: Grasp your partner in a 
vise-like grip with the left arm, clutch 
her wrist with the right hand, and then 
shuffle like a buffalo. If she trembles, 
blow down the back of her neck. If she 
closes her eyes, rub her with your whis- 
kers. Periodically, take time out and lis- 
ten to the music. 

Conservatory Notes 

Several new policies have been in- 
troduced in the Conservatory this 
year. The first semester the com- 
bined Chorus and Glee Club will meet 
twice a week under the direction of 
Professor Rutledge. This combined 
group has scheduled two concerts for 
December. The beginning of the sec- 
ond semester the regular College Glee 
Club will be organized, the members 
of which will be chosen from the 
present combined group. 

Another new policy in the Con- 
servatory is the new course, "The Re- 
pair and Care of Instruments", which 
will be taught by Professor Carmean. 
The work shop will be the Physics 
laboratory in the Administration Build- 
ing. Instruments of the band and 
orchestra will be kept in repair by the 
students of this class, and any other 
instruments will be repaired for the 
cost of the material.

Faculty Musicians 
On Initial Program 

"The Quest For Truth"— Topic 

The opening exercises of the regular 
college year were held on Monday, Sep- 
tember 24, 1934. The program was very 
well planned— at the beginning Professor 
R. Porter Campbell very capably ren- 
dered "Grave Maestoso— Allegro" by 
Pagella. After the doxology and invoca- 
tion by Dr. Stonecipher, Miss Nella Mil- 
ler, with her accustomed'! of 
technique, interpreted "Etude in D flat" 
and "Gnomenreigen" by Lizt. Follow- 
ing the scripture and prayer offered by 
Dr. Butterwick, Prof. Crawford greatly 
entertained the audience with ' Rolling 
Down to Rio" by German, "Trade 
Winds" by Keel, and "Dearest" by Ho- 
mer. An amusing ditty, "If She Love 
Not Me," was chosen as an encore. Mrs. 
Bender was the accompanist. 

The speaker of the morning was Dr. 
F. Berry Plummer, of Hagerstown, Md. 
His topic was "The Quest for Truth." 
The gist of his talk was that throughout 
the ages man's goal has been truth, which 
is always absolute, never relative. He 
exhorted the students to keep that as an 
aim during college life and after, holding 
an unbiased mind toward all facts. These 
thoughts were given as a challenge to the 
students in choosing their activities for 
the oncoming year. 

This interesting program was brought 
to a close by Professor Campbell with a 
forceful postlude.

Dame Cupid At Work 
On College Campus 

The list of recent weddings gives 
ur. ample proof that cupid is still in 
hiding somewheres on the college 
campus. Perhaps the biggest surprise 
was the result of a romance not quite 
a year old— the marriage of Helen 
Grusko, Garfield, New Jersey, for- 
mer L. V. student, to Harry Whiting, 
a junior who resides at Cape May 
Court House. They were married in 
Hummelstown, during the summer, by 
Rev. Morgan Edwards of the class of 
34. Good luck, Sully! 

Haidee Blubaugh, Baltimore, a ju- 
nior here last year, and Albert Kaz- 
lusky, Minersville, '33, were married 
August 29. 



On Tuesday night of last week the an- 
nual Lebanon Valley College murder 
climaxed the rivalry of Leech and Pala- 
tini. The gallants were trying to win the 
favor of Jean Bitting. The two gentle- 
men had been going one another verbal 
lashings for the past two weeks, and 
Jean had been rather in a muddle. She 
was learning to balance the whole affair 
when Palatini put Leech off the waiter 
force. This, of course, irked Leech, and 
when his desire to assert himself could 
not be quelled, he strode forth on Tues- 
day noon and punched Palatini in the 
face. The defense retaliated with a left 
to the chin and the fight was on! Finally 
they were separated. 

This, naturally, was for the benefit of 
the freshmen, and they refused to become 
very excited about it, thinking it was so 

Miss Bitting did her part by weeping 
continually at meals, in her room, and on 
the campus — this too for the freshmen. 

Then on Tuesday night the odds were 
against L. V. The moon insisted upon 
shining, the stars beamed, and the only 
help was that the campus lights refused 
to burn. At twenty minutes after nine 
three shots rang out, and poor Palatini 
fell flat on his face in front of the men's 
dorm; Leech, by this time, was speeding 
away in a machine. 

Many of the freshmen were wise and 
took it very calmly, but those who were 
not dashed hither and yon getting water, 
profs, pills, and smelling salts. These 
were for the usual number of people with 
weak hearts, yens for Palatini, and ope- 

The Dean carried off her part by hur- 
rying into the rooms of the afflicted, 
while Miss Wood cared for the wounded 
in the men's "dorm," and for the mental- 
ly wounded in South Hall. The screams 
and weeping of the upperclassmen were 
well acted and almost convincing. 

The excitement was drawn out for 
quite a long time. When the freshmen 
were enlightened some refused to believe 
it was a joke, a few wept, and some 
tossed their heads and nonchalantly 
smirked, "You're telling me." The so-

A Trial Will Convince You! 

The first of the series of "Y" services 
was held Sunday evening, September 23, 
at 6:00 P. M. in the chapel as a joint "Y" 
vesper service. The meeting was opened 
with a piano prelude by Grace Naugle 
after which the student group sang a 
hymn. Elwood Needy, who presided at 
the service, read the scripture lesson, and 
Dr. Lynch offered an appropriate prayer. 
Dale Roth played a trombone solo, ac- 
companied by Ruth Buck. The speaker 
of the service, Dr. Alvin Stonecipher, ex- 
plained to the new students "The Why 
of the Y" and pointed out to them the 
advantages of a Christian life on the 
campus. Gayle Mountz sang the prayer 
"Just for Today,'" and the service was 
closed with a hymn and the benediction. 
The "Y" extends a cordial invitation to 
the new students to attend the Sunday 
vespers and hopes that they will find 
each service worthwhile.

ftalozetean Talent 
Displayed At Smoker 
Before Freshmen 


iy| r> A. K. Mills and Rev. Harry 
Miller, Prominent Alumni, 

Kalo gave the freshmen their first taste 
of a regular society meeting at their 
Smoker last Thursday night, which 
opened with a business session involving 
committee reports. 

After the business had been dispensed 
with entertainment began. Ernest Koch 
started the ball rolling by giving his own 
unique piano arrangement of "Stardust." 
Next Kalo was honored to present a 
man who is very well-known socially 
and politically in this district, one of 
Kalo's first members and one of its most 
active alumni, Mr. A. K. Mills. Mr. 
Mills stressed the importance of joining 
a society and dwelt upon the value of 
society training and associations in after 
life. Mr. Mills also gave Kalo a glowing 
tribute when he praised the society's 
esprit de corps. 

A Kalo meeting would not be com- 
plete i- Robert Sausser and Jack Schuler 
were not called upon to play their fa- 
mous version of "Goofus." After this 
piece was presented Russell Hatz joined 
them for a violin trio of "Love In 

Though the president of the society 
had decreed that politics should be barred 
from the meeting he could not hold Har- 
old Beamesderfer in check. Harold con- 
tinued to upset the meeting until he was 
permitted to make a political speech 
m which he announced his candidacy for 
the Board of Aldermen. He delivered a 
v «ry stirring plea for votes. 

To escape from the mercenary details 
°f politics Earl Linger was called upon 
for a cornet solo. He played "Sweet 
Sue with such success that he was re- 
called to play his version of a duet of 

Old Black Joe" as an encore. 

Another prominent Kalo alumni to 
s Peak to the hundred or more Kalos and 
guests was R ev Harry Miller of Leba- 

° n ' ^ ev - Miller spun several interesting 
yarns of the old days and discussed the

"Inheritors" And 

Society Skits 

Friday, October 12, marks a busy 
day in the college social program of 
Lebanon Valley. The student body 
and neighboring literary organiza- 
tions will be entertained by the 
Hedgerow Players in their afternoon 
production of Susan Glaspell's "In- 
heritors." This company has come to 
the college without a guarantee, so 
that unusual student effort should be 
put forth toward making this first en- 
deavor a successful one. The "Wig 
and Buckle" Club is hard at work 
selling tickets and giving the play 

The four literary societies will pre- 
sent their programs in the chapel at 
8:00 P. M. This is an annual affair 
for the benefit of prospective fresh- 
men members. After the programs 
there will be a dance held in the 
alumni gymnasium— a joint affair pro- 
vided for by all the societies and to 
which all are invited. 

L. V. Represented 
1st All-Star Contest 


Miss Gayle Mountz Has Pic- 
ture Taken With Noted 

Approximately fifty of the college stu- 
dents and faculty attended the concert 
featuring Laurence Tibbett, renowned 
operatic baritone, in the Educational 
Forum in Harrisburg last Thursday. It 
was the first of the All-Star Concert 
series, a group of programs which will 
be of interest to any student who is fond 
of good music. 

According to most of the students, the 
excerpt from the opera, "Emperor 
Jones," by Louisa Gruenburg, best dis- 
played Tibbett's true dramatic ability. It 
was the audience's favorite number. 

The encores were a delightful group 
in themselves, clever songs which readily 
attract an audience. Among them were 
the "American Lullaby," Gladys Rich; 
"Short'nin' Bread," Jacque Wolfe, and 
those two popular songs, "Without a 
Song," and "Glory Road." 

Tibbett impressed everyone with his 
generosity and congeniality in his encore 
numbers. Many of the students were able 
to have their programs autographed af- 
ter the concert, among them being Miss 
Gayle Mountz, whose picture was taken 
with Tibbett, receiving his autograph. 

Clionian Goddess 
Leads to Kreider's 
Traditional Hike 


Guests Kept Busy With Plenti- 
ful Refreshments and 

On Friday evening the goddess Miner- 
va again led the members of the Clionian 
Literary Society and their guests, the 
freshmen girls, on the traditional hike to 
the lovely Kreider estate. Forming at 
North Hall the girls, each clutching a 
lemon and peppermint, walked up in 
groups. After a tour of the entire grounds 
the fire was made under the large trees 
by the stream. 

Supper was announced first. This 
brought every imaginable goodie in un- 
imaginable quantities. Baked beans, 
sandwiches, cakes, potato-chips, pickles, 
and cocoa were included on the menu. 

And then came the program! Befitting 
the day's Indian summer weather Grace 
Naugle read an Indian legend about the 
great Indian chief Postum. This was a 
true case of "know your ads." Next 
Jerry Harkins who had brought her uke 
sang several popular numbers and led 
group singing. 

It is always fun to speculate on the 
future. — where will I be ten years from 
now? or what will I be doing next year? 
But when one hears a really skilled pro- 
phet tried and true it is even more fun. 
To Clio Emma Reinbold is such a pro-

The usual Sunday evening Friendly 
Hour was conducted in North Hall par- 
lor Sunday, October 7, at 5:30 o'clock 
by Louise Shearer. The meeting was 
opened with the singing of "When Morn- 
ing Gilds the Skies," following which 
Helen Summy rendered a very delight- 
ful vocal solo entitled "Let Not Your 
Heart be Troubled." 

The group again joined in the pro- 
gram with the singing of "Crown Him 
With Many Crowns," after which Vir- 
ginia Summers led devotions. Rae Anna 
Reber then favored the gathering with a 
piano solo bearing the title "Butterfly." 
John Oxenham's "A High Way and a 
Low" was then presented in verse form 
by Iva Claire Weirick. The closing fea- 
ture of the evening was the selection 
"O Worship the King." 



State Gridders Score Twice To Win By 13-0 Score— 79 Yard 
Advance Carries Lebanon Valley to State Three Yard Line 
At Half Time. 

Band Opens With 
Chapel Appearance 


Wagner Gives Brief Talk 
Band And Its Former 



Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen made their 1934 debut at 
State College on Saturday and flashed brilliant form to hold Penn 
State to a hard-earned two-touchdown margin of victory. 

Even the 13-0 score does not fully tell the story of the close- 
ness of the battle. State outscored "Jerry" Frock's outfit by the 
slight margin of 14-11 in the matter of first downs. The stubborn- 
ness with which Lebanon Valley yielded is further attested to by 
the fact that the Nittany Lions were twice repulsed after gaining 
first downs within the ten yard line. On one occasion, State 

recovered a bad pass which Sincavage 
had thrown over Rust's head to the Leb- 
anon Valley 3-yard line, yet was unable 
to push the pigskin over the goal. 

The Valley gridsters flashed the long- 
est sustained drive of the afternoon, 
moving 79 yards before the timer's whis- 
tle halted them on the State 3-yard line 
at the end of the first half. In this bril- 
liant uninterrupted drive "Charlie" Rust, 
"Scoop" Feeser, Ross Sheesley, and Bill 
Smith had the Lions constantly worried 
with line drives, reverses, and end runs 
cleverly mixed in with a devastating 
passing attack which functioned well all 
afternoon, 9 of 14 attempted aerials be- 
ing completed. It took only 13 plays for 
the Flying Dutchmen to accomplish their 
79-yard advance, the final 26 yards be- 
ing covered on a long forward pass from 
Rust to Smith. With the pigskin resting 
on the State 3-yard line, the half ended 
before a play could be executed. A Val- 
ley score would have been practically 
assured, for the L. V. C. gridders had 
averaged more than 6 yards per play on 
the 13 previous plays. 

Penn State's points were made in the 
first and third quarters. Midway in the 
first period O'Hara intercepted Rust's 
pass on his own 44 and the Lions start- 
ed a drive which ended in a score when 
Silvano slipped through the line for a 
touchdown from the 1-yard stripe. Sigel 
and Silvano did most of the ground- 
gaining in this successful drive. Mike- 
continued on Page 3) 

In the pep meeting last Friday morn- 
ing the student body had its first thrill at 
hearing the band break into the strains 
of a rousing march. The first two num- 
bers were the immortal Sousa's "U. S. 
Field Artillery March" and "The Stars 
and otripes Forever." To the former 
has been adapted the words of our "Fight 
Song" (freshmen, please note). To the 
latter, in which "Tony" Jagnesak has 
gained glory in playing the piccolo obli- 
gate there has been a new addition. Be- 
sides presenting "Tony" in his usual 
spirited manner, the band has gone 
to the other extreme, in size and pitch of 
instruments, in offering the same obligato 
on the tuba, played by Carl Albert . 

Following these two numbers there 
were a few cheers with the introduction 
of a new cheer, the "Fly, Dutchmen." 
Prof. Wagner gave an illuminating little 
talk on the part played by the band in 
helping to make our last football season 
so successful. 

The band concluded the program by 
playing E. E. Bagley's "National Em- 
blem March."

ing promises to be the scene of the great- 
est convention in its short but brilliant 

Every prominent Illinois personage 
headed by Governor Henry Horner and 
Mayor Edward J. Kelly, has given the 
convention his hearty indorsement and 
has promised 1 his fullest cooperation. 

Colonel Rufus C. Dawes, president of 
the Chicago World's Fair, has extended

Cockshott Prayer 

Circle Speaker 

The Wednesday evening prayer 
circle was opened by a short prelude 
played by Ruth Gayne. After the 
singing of a few hymns Catherine 
Wagner read the scripture and of- 
fered the prayer. Martha Elser played 
a beautiful and inspiring violin solo. 

The speaker of the evening was 
Miss Lena Cockshott. Her topic for 
discussion was "Our Mind." She 
urged us to be more selective in 
choosing what we put in and pass out 
of our minds. The benediction closed 
the customary prayer circle. The 
speaker for next week is Louis Straub.

THURSDAY, OCT. 11, 1934 


After several weeks of college have 
bustled by we cannot help but realize 
that with the fall inevitably comes none 
other than the rushing season— common- 
ly familiar to worldly-wise upper class- 
men, but quite new to the novice fresh- 
men. Every one dashes about smiling 
brightly to him, or to her, complimenting 
the gullible freshman on his dashing at- 
tire, his flashy tweeds, her dazzling ward- 
robe, or her gorgeous hair. Then, as is 
common to the human species— creatures 
not averse to flattery— this is swallowed 
hook, line, and sinker for all it is worth 
only to be realized at a more distant date 
as to have been merely a heavy coating 
of "campus crap" smoothed over the 
very human surface of ordinary college 
mortals— only a thin veneer which soon 
wears off with the passing of time, two 
months usually being sufficient to erase 
most of its traces. This exhortation is 
not intended to make cynics of all the 
former trusting souls, but merely a hint 
to hunt for genuineness in the choosing 
of new friends and associates. A smiling 
countenance is not always a true sign of 
real friendliness. Do not be in a hurry to 
select your bosom companions. Regard 
them all carefully, and after their true 
worth is assured, make your choice as to 
your intimate circle. Emerson claims 
that "a friend is a person with whom I 
may be sincere. .Before him I may think 
aloud." Be sure that such is your feel- 
ing, not merely an effort to keep up with 
the Joneses, a trifling conversation of the 
next tea, football game, sneak date, but 
rather one with whom we can discuss our 
daily problems, sorrows, and joys. 

We read in our American History of 
the earliest struggles of our nation, in- 
ternal battles over party selections. So 
this state of affairs has come down to 
us through the centuries in a milder 
form, the nature of the beast evidently, 
until we notice its unwelcome hostile 
presence harbored within our college 
walls— the petty jealousies, the sly tricks, 
the beaming advances towards all new 
and likely prospects. Somebody loses, 
somebody wins, and the current moves 
on quietly until another year. 

Can we not all remember rather clear- 
ly our green earlier days when as new 
students we wandered up the Lebanon 
Valley lane in quest of culture and an 
entertaining social whirl? Immediately 
caught into the net of opening programs, 
hikes, smokers, and the bosom compan- 
ionship of all the older college "400" we 

became inflated with our importance, con- 
sidered ourselves desirable beyond all 
earlier hopes, and eagerly signed on the 
dotted line one or the other of the two 
college societies. At this stage of the 
game one is apt to place far too much 
importance on the final choice, thinking 
that a move in one direction will cut off 
all friendships on the other, but as is af- 
terwards discovered, college life moves 
along in much the same vein regardless 
of this vitally important decision made. 

Every society has its good and its 
weak points, just as do normal healthy 
individuals. The best method to use in 
selecting a final choice is to make the 
rounds of all thoroughly, view with un- 
prejudiced eyes all prospects, and finally 
after careful and thoughtful concentra- 
tion make a cool, calm, and collected de- 
cision, not a fiery spur-of-the-moment 
one to be regretted at leisure, but rather 
one made after a deliberate calculation of 
the society in itself, its members, and its 
worth to you as a college student and 
an individual. Will you be proud to say 
"Yes, I was a member of—", or would 
you prefer to remain silent about your 
early choice? After all, it is unchange- 
able^ — once a member, always a member 
—no trial and error method, but a one 
and only selection. 


There are tricks to all trades it is said, 
and rightly so. It seems that a new one 
has been advanced in the way of recog- 
nizing friends. Nose rubbing is more 
widely used by mankind as a greeting 
than are handshaking and kissing com- 
bined.^ — Collier's. 

Mrs. Anton Lang, Jr., the former Klara 
Mayr of Oberammergau, gave up the 
role of Mary Magdalene in the famous 
Passion Play to marry Dr. Lang and 
come with him to America. This petite 
blue-eyed blonde lassie was a childhood 
sweetheart of Dr. Lang who is the son 
of the former Christus of the play. The 
Langs recently arrived in Washington 
to make their home there. Do you be- 
lieve then that "Love conquers all?"— 
Literary Digest. 

Lost to gustatory history is the story 
of how the Parker House roll came into 
being, but far from last is the roll and its 
reputation. The only thing definitely es- 
tablished is the fact that the crisp, gold- 
en, folded pastry was conceived by Har- 
vey D. Parker, founder of the famed hos- 
telry which bears his name. News of the 
delicious roll was carried far and wide 
by travelers who could not find its dupli- 
cate elsewhere; soon requests for the re- 
cipe poured in from hotel men all over 
the globe. Quick to recognize the value 
of such fame, the Parker House gladly 
gave the recipe to all who asked. Today 
the simple Parker House roll stands high 
in the roster of famous foods; its shape 
has been imitated, but never its flavor. 

Those who say that drama and color 
no longer flourish in sports should have 
been present at the weighing-in party in- 
volving Max Baer, the new heavyweight 
champion of the world, and Primo Car- 
nera whom he whipped on the night of 
June 14th. That was the occasion, both 
men being stripped to the waist, when 
Baer marched over to where Primo was 
preparing to step on the scales, and care- 
lessly plucked from his enormous chest 
a long and wavy black hair. 

"She loves me," quoth Master Baer, 
tossed it aside and plucked another. "She 
loves me not. . . " 

"Hey!" yelled Primo. "Worra marra 
you? You wanna give me cancer? You 
beeg clown, no?" 

"Shut up and hold still," said Baer, 
calmly picking another hair— "She loves 
me, she loves me not. . . she loves me!" 

During the fight 'itself Baer could find 
time suddenly to feint and holler "Boo" 
at his gruesome 263-pound opponent, 
nearly giving Camera heart failure. He 
could also in the tenth round, before 
knocking the giant insensible and out on 
his feet, wal'.c calmly over into Car- 
nera's corner and shuffle his feet in Car- 
nera's rosin while the baffled ogre merely 
stared at him open-jmouthed. 

This same Baer Said to Camera after 
knocking him down for the third time in 
the same round and having the toppling 
Camera drag him down with him each 
time: "Last one up is a sissy."— Vanity 

Versatility seems to be no unusual 
trait these days. jColonel Charles A. 
Lindbergh, one of jthe world's foremost 
aviators, also is a brilliant student of bi- 
ology, it was recently stated in Paris by 
Dr. Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller In- 
stitute, New York. The Institute has re- 
fused to reveal the kind of work in which 
the aviator is engaged. Last year, how- 
ever, he made a report to science on a 
new method of washing blood corpus- 
cles in suspension.— Literary Digest. 

No rest for the weary! Friendly rela- 
tions between Greece and Turkey have 
been at least temporarily disturbed by a 
new Turkish law closing a long list of 
lesser trades to all persons who are not 
Turks. The law is general in its terms 
and aliens of all nationalities living in 
Istanbul, Ankara, and other centers are 
affected. The Greeks are hardest hit be- 
cause their numbers are largest. On July 
28, the first of a steady stream of in- 
voluntary immigrants reached Athens- 
barbers, butchers, and other artisans of 
whom, in most instances, there is already 
an over-supply in the home country. Ac- 
cording to Turkish figures, 2,000 Greeks 
or fifteen per cent of the city's Greek 
population, are affected in Istanbul alone.

Again the old song "Yes, We Have 
No Bananas" will serve its purpose. A 
strike of banana workers on the east 
coast of Costa Rica virtually paralyzed 
the banana industry in that country dur- 
ing August. The strike began as early 
as August 10 and within ten days 7,000 
laborers were idle. The strike was esti- 
mated to have cost Costa Rican planters 
$25,000. Acts of sabotage were commit- 
ted but there were no clashes between 
the strikers and the police.— Current His-

Because of many requests two well- 
known performers, Helen Earnest and 
Kotty McAdam, repeated one of their 
"Silly Symphonies." The tale of the 
"Lovers Who Lied" was recounted with 
all due pathos and dramatic effort. Now

Lebanon Valley's '34 gridders made a 
i ,.Hng impression on all those who 
Viewed la st Saturday's tilt with Penn 
State. The Flying Dutchmen displayed 
brilliant offense, a stubborn defense, 
nd 3 c l ever passing attack. The score 
i first downs— State 14, L. V. C. 11, is 
#ell worth remembering and a record 
f 9 out of 14 forward passes completed 
, er ves definite notice that the Dutchmen 
w jll have to be watched in th> 
' w ell as on land. 

ie air as 

Valley's ends had plenty to worry 
ibout whenever the Nittany Lions de- 
cided to execute their well-developed end 
rlin . To the ends and secondary defend- 
ers, that play must certainly have looked 
like the Charge of the Light Brigade. 

The best defensive coup of the whole 


was accredited to L. V. C. when 

State was held after they had recovered 
a bad pass from center on Lebanon Val- 
ley's three yard line. 

Many Valley newcomers performed on 
Saturday. Broun and Sheesley were the 
only starters who had never before seen 
L, V. varsity service, but many of the 
substitutes were in their initial battle for 
the Blue and White. Rozman, Carchidi, 
Davies, Klipa, Kroske, and Tindall 
showed their wares against the Lions and 
hold great promise for the future. 

And so, now that we are past the 
Lions without serious injury, ON TO 

The Mules lost their second tilt in as 
many starts to the Lafayette College 
gridders by a 19-0 score. 

And how have Lebanon Valley's other 
opponents been faring? Some pretty well 
.and others not so well. Drexel bowed to 
West Chester's Teachers by a 6-0 mar- 
gin to lower their season average to .500. 

Delaware got under way with an im- 
pressive win over St. Joseph's. Juniata 
gave the strong Gettysburg Bullets plen- 
ty to worry about before succumbing, 

Albright's Lions showed some of the 
real power they are supposed to possess 
in taking Dickinson into camp, 7-0. 

P- M. C. continued its policy of re- 
fusing to score or to be scored upon by 
Playing another scoreless tie, this time 
wit h "Hooks" Mylin's Bucknell Bisons. 

Not that we like to bray, pat ourselves 
° n tne back, or pin any daisies on our- 
Se ^ Ves> hut we did pretty well in guess- 
ln 9 the State-L. V. C. score. We called 

3s a 13-7 State victory and we were 
0r >ly three yards and one of "Smitty's" 
Placement kicks away from being abso- 
ute ly correct. However, although we 

ave not fared so well the first time, we

an Vhol Sed ' Pr °bably too much, but 

lonis missed a placement kick try for the 
extra point. 

State's second score was made after a 
65-yard drive in the third period. After 
Lebanon Valley had been held for three 
downs on its own 47-yard line, Rust 
punted to Sigel, who took the ball on his 
own 20 and returned it 15 yards to his 
35. With Sigel, Silvano, and Morrison 
alternating at carrying the ball, State got 
under way again, Morrison finally scor- 
ing a touchdown on a two yard run 
around end. Mikelonis added the point 
to give State its thirteenth point. 


Cooper, State fullback, kicked off to 
Rust on the five yard line and Rust punt- 
ed back to Mikelonis on the State 48. 
Cooper made 2 yards on a line buck and 
Morrison added one off tackle. After 
Mikelonis was held for no gain he kicked 
to Rust, who returned the ball from the 
15 to the 25. Sheesley made 3 yards. 
Lebanon Valley was penalized 15 yards 
for offensive holding. Rust was held for 
no gain on a run from kick formation. 
Rust punted on the next play, and State 
was penalized for roughing the kicker, 
giving L. V. C. the ball on their own 28 
yard line. A pass, Rust to Smith, was 
incomplete, but Feeser made 1 1 yards for 
a first down on the 39. Rust made 3 
yards off tackle and Whiting added one 
through center. O'Hara intercepted Rust's 
pass on his own 44-yard line. Sigel lost 
one yard off tackle, then picked dp 9 
around end. Cooper hit center for 6 
yards and a first down on the L. V. 40 
yard line. Bartolet stopped Cooper for 
no gain, but L. V. was detected offsides 
on the play. Whiting threw Cooper for 
a two-yard loss and Rozman threw Mor- 
rison for a three-yard loss. On the next 
play Lebanon Valley was off sides, giv- 
ing State a first down. Morrison was 
held for no gain around end, Cooper 
picked up 4 off tackle, and Sigel went 
around end for a first down on the 18. 
A pass thrown by Mikelonis fell incom- 
pleted. Silvano went in for Cooper at 
fullback for State and carried the ball on 
three straight plays to give State a first 
down on the 6-yard line. Sigel made 2 
around end and Silvano hit the line for 
3 more, making it third down— one yard 
to go for a touchdown. Silvano scored 
on the next play, driving hard through 
the center of the line. Mikelonis missed 
a placement kick for the extra point. 
Score— State 6, L. V. C. 0. 

Mikelonis kicked off to Whiting who 
was forced out of bounds on the L. V. 
25-yard line. Feeser gained two yards 
around end on a reverse play. Rust re- 
covered a bad pass from center on the 
ten yard line as the quarter ended. 

Rust punted and Carchidi recovered 
when State fumbled the kick on the L. V. 
45. Rust gained two off tackle. Carchidi 
was thrown for a 5-yard loss by Schuy- 
ler. Rust's quick kick was out of bounds 
on State's 35. Once again State was 
charged with roughing tfv kicker, how- 
ever, and L. V. gained a first down on 
the 43. Shu-sley made 2 yards off tackle. 
Rust failed to gain around end. Rust 


These men donned the Blue and White of Lebanon Valley for the first time 
against Penn State and performed creditably. Coach "Jerry" Frock is counting 
heavily on them as reserves this year and will certainly not forget when next year's 
varsity is gathered together. 

kicked to Knapp, wno was thrown by 
Feeser on his 25. Sigel made a first down 
around end. Silvano was held for no 
gain and Knapp was thrown for a 5 yard 
loss as the L. V. forwards piled in. Mike- 
lonis punted to Rust on the 20-yard line. 
Sheesley squirmed through tackle for 7 
yards. State was caught off sides on the 
next play, giving Lebanon Valley a first 
down on the 34. Maurer went in for 
Mikelonis and Kroske for Stefano. Fee- 
ser was held for no gain on a reverse. 
Rust's quick kick was taken by Knapp on 
the State 33. Sigel was stopped by Bar- 
tolet after a 2 yard gain. Sigel made 14 
yards for a first down on the L. V. 49. 
At this point Lebanon Valley braced and 
State was forced to kick after two pass- 
es had failed and a line plunge was 
stopped. Silvano punted and Rust re- 
turned the pigskin from his 8-yard line 
to his 18. On a fake kick formation 
Sheesley made 9 yards. Feeser made a 
first down. Rust galloped around end 
for 9 yards and Feeser made it another 
first down on the 38. Sheesley was held 
for no gain' on a reverse play. A pass, 
Rust to Sheesley, was good for 9 yards. 
State was off sides on the next play, giv- 
ing L. V. a first down on the 43. Rust 
picked up 3 yards off tackle. After one 
forward— Rust to Feeser— had failed to

This is the Rose Valley Play House of the Hedgerow Group situated just outside Philadelphia. The Little Theatre 
Movement has been growing by leaps and bounds in America, and this group of actors and actresses is now one of the most 
outstanding in the United States. It is with these Thespians that Ann Harding started her career. Lebanon Valley is indeed 
fortunate to have these players on the campus, and an effort should be made by all to make their visit a pleasant and profi- 
table one. , 

Seniors to Conduct 

Chapel Singing 

In a few weeks the student conduc- 
tors of the senior class will lead the 
singing in chapel. Each of these se- 
niors—Ruth Bailey, Myrle Deaven, Ida 
Hall, Ethel Keller, Ernest Koch, and 
Robert Scheirer, will conduct for one 
week. Next semester a series of music 
programs for Friday mornings will be 
prepared and presented by these student 
conductors. So the student body is look- 
ing forward to these novel presentations, 
as they are sure to be different. 


(Continued from Page 1) 

In order to give the new students an 
opportunity to get a glimpse of the kind 
of talent to expect in Kalo Minstrels, 
Stuart Goodman was asked to sing a 
few pieces. He agreed and contributed 
vocal solos of "Two Cigarettes In the 
Dark" and "Butterfly" to the program. 

Despite society rush seasons, classes, 
and programs, one thing every student 
on the campus is interested in is the 
prospects of our football team. In re- 
sponse to this interest several of Kalo's 

football men were called upon to discuss 
the team. Among the varsity players to 
speak were Charles Furlong, Harry 
Whiting, Boyd Sponaugle, and Stephano. 
Manager Cullather gave a real live pep 
talk. These football talks had gotten in- 
to the blood so Elwood Needy came out 
to lead a few cheers. 

The regular program was concluded 
by Andrew Anderson playing a medley 
of tunes on the piano. After the pro- 
gram was finished social period began. 
Food and smokes were served in abun- 
dance and any one who did not get his 
share has only himself to blame. Cold 
apple cider, sandwiches, cup cakes, crack- 
ers, and pretzels were on the menu. 
Some started to sing, others played in- 
struments, still others told stories. Lyle 
Moser soon became the unofficial head 
of entertainment and contributed several 
witty songs and poems. After some 
would-be close harmony in which every 
one joined, the meeting closed with the 
men drifting away in small groups or

jasper Deeter — Founder and Director — Supported by Cast of 
Nineteen of Hedgerow Group Entertain Lebanon Valley 
Students In Engle Hall — Performance in Harrisburg. 

One of the most appreciated entertainments ever afforded 
Lebanon Valley College faculty, students, and friends was pre- 
sented Friday afternoon in Engle Hall when the Hedgerow The- 
atre players appeared in Susan Glaspell's play, "Inheritors." 

It is interesting to >know something of the history and pur- 
pose oi this group of actors, the Hedgerow Theatre players. In 
1923 Jasper Deeter, the founder and director, gathered together a 
group of players who had become dissatisfied with the commercial 
Broadway theatre. He felt that the theatre with its commercial 
make-up was run chiefly to keep the business man active, and that 

it was not conducive to sincere artistry 
in drama. So he started out with $9 and 
a willing spirit, in a building that had 
been a mill, 14 miles from Philadelphia. 
The result of that revolt is the present 
Hedgerow, a group of twenty people who 
have built an organization which with- 
out subsidy or endowment provides them 
with a theatre of their own and a chance 
to present more plays in one month than 
would be possible in a year under ordi- 
nary auspices. 

In 1933 they used thirty-three plays of 
the repertory of 100 and operated fifty 
weeks out of the fifty-two. Growing in 
popularity every year, the theatre offers 
substantial testimony to its value. 

Back in 1921 when this body of actors 
was known as the Provincetown Players 
and were neither a popular or famous or- 
ganization, "Inheritors" was first pro- 
duced. Anne Harding at that time played 
the role of Madeline, and Jasper Deeter 
even then appeared as Ira. At that time 
the play was neither lauded nor well- 

In 1879 two men occupied adjoining 
farms in Iowa: Silas Morton, son of the 
earliest pioneers from Ohio who fought 
Black Hawk and his red men for the 
' an d, and Felix Fejevary, a Hungarian 
gentleman, who had left his country and 
sought freedom in America after the 
Witless revolution of 1848. The two 
men were lifelong friends, and Morton 
Wno had had but two winters of school- 
m 9. absorbed from his Hungarian friend 
a de ep sense of the value of culture and

The "Whig and Buckle" was orga- 
nized as a dramatic club on October 28, 
1933. The club was organized for those 
people who were interested in stage work 
of any kind with Dr. Wallace as ad- 

The club has three groups of members; 
cub, general, and letter progressively. 
Admission is secured by a written appli- 
cation to the recording secretary. This 
application should state the dramatic 
productions in which the individual has 
taken part in school and college, and 
what phase of dramatics he is interested 
in, whether it be directing, acting, make- 
up, or stage settings. 

A person may be advanced from cub 
to general membership after he has acted 
in any club or campus play. Advance- 
ment from general to letter membership 
depends upon the brilliance of the indi- 
vidual and the individual's acting in some 
major class, club, or society play. 

The club meets monthly for the pur- 
pose of discussing or presenting plays 
for the edification of its members. The 
executive committee outlines the program 
of events for the year. 

Last year the "Wig and Buckle" suc- 
cessfully presented the following plays: 
'A Bedtime Story," "Antigone," "Every- 
man," and "The Bishop's Candle-stick." 

This year the club made its first effort 
in securing for L. V. C. the famous 
Hedgerow Players in "Inheritors" by 
Susan Glaspell. The players are un- 
doubtedly artists and gave one of the 
finest performances ever witnessed. 

The future holds much for the "Wig 
and Buckle" Club members. The execu- 
tive board plans are that they present a 
series of three comedies as minor plays, 
and a major play, also a comedy. 

The first minor play promises to be a 
screamingly funny melodrama with a vil- 
lain, hero, and all. This is for the open- 
ing meeting to which everyone is in- 

Valley Footballers 
Bow to Muhlenberg 
In Second Defeat 


Late Scores Win for Mules 
After L. V. Deadlocks 

The Lebanon Valley College football 
team journeyed to Allentown Saturday 
with high hopes of victory, but returned 
the victims of a 25-7 defeat at rhe hands 
of Muhlenberg's Mules, who showed a 
distinct reversal of form atter defeats in 
two previous tilts. The "Flying Dutch- 
men," equally as good as the Allentown 
gridders, launched their only successful 
offensive drive in the third period to knot 
the count at 7-7. After this show of pow- 
er, the Valleyites seemed to lose some of 
their fighting spirit and the roused Mules 
fought on to three more touchdowns and 
an overwhelming victory. 

Lebanon Valley played heads-up foot- 
ball in the first period and kept Muhlen- 
berg deep in its own territory due largely 
to the stellar quick kicks of co-Captain 
"Smoky" Rust. In the second period a 
25-yard return of one of Rust's punts 
gave the Mules a first down on the L. V. 
28-yard line. Bloom, Laing, and Farrel 
made it first down on the 1 1 -yard stripe. 
On the next play D'com hit the center of 
the line for 8 yards and Farrel slid off 
tackle for the score. 

The Flying Dutchmen knotted the 
score in the third period. Feeser took a 
Muhlenberg punt on the Mules' 35-yard 
line. Rust made a yard off tackle and 
then heaved a forward to Sheesley who 
wormed his way to the three yard line.

Clio, Delphian, Philo, and Kalo Give Freshmen Idea of Abilities 
Possessed By Society Members — Audience Delighted With 
Clever Skits, Witty Burlesque, and Musical Numbers. 

H„ H. Shenk's Name 
In "Who's Who" 


Noted For Outstanding Work 
As A Historian And 

The climax of freshman rushing took place in chapel on Fri- 
day, October 12, when a very entertaining program was given by 
each of the four societies in a joint session. A large and apprecia- 
tive audience enjoyed the clever skits, witty burlesques, and har- 
monious musical numbers. 

The purpose of this annual program is to give the freshmen 
an idea of the aims and tendencies of the different societies with, 
a view toward their deciding preference. 

After the presentations, there was dancing in the Alumni 
gymnasium to the peppy rhythm of Jack Schuler and his orchestra. 

Kappa Lambda Nu 

The program was opened by Helen 
Earnest who greeted the audience and 
the freshmen in particular as president of 
the Clionian Society. The setting of their 
entertainment, Club Clio, was a midnight 
revel, with groups sitting around card ta- 
bles, eating and chatting. Maxine Earley, 
as master of ceremonies, announced that 
there would be special numbers to please 
the freshmen. First Martha Elser with 
her usual polished technique played "Si- 
cilienne and Rigaudon" by Kreisler. 

The piece de resistance was a surprise, 
which proved to be Maxine Earley do- 
ing a "Helen Morgan" crooning, "St. 
Louis Blues," with Louise Gillan as ac- 
companist. It certainly was surprising, 
as it brought out some wholly undreamed- 
of "talents." 

An adagio dance was given by the 
Push and Pull team, composed of Jerry 
Harkins and Mary Batz. A novelty piano 
duet rendition of "Chloe" by Grace Nau- 
gle and Lois Harbold was so well liked 
that an encore, "Glow-worm," was re- 
quested. The final number was an imita- 
tion of the Pickens sisters by Jane Shel- 
lenberger, Helen Summy, and Mildred 
Nye, who sang "I Saw Stars." 

Phi Lambda Sigma 

In behalf of the Philokosmian society 
Kenneth Shaeffer greeted the audience. 
A sensational group of dancing beauties 
imported from Broadway was announced 
as the feature of the program. First, 
three beauteous damsels, the Lo-Phi Trio, 
consisting of Lester Krone, Sam Harnish,

Included in the biographical dictionary 
of notable living men and women of the 
United States, more commonly called the 
"Who's Who In America," is the name 
of Professor H. H. Shenk, a member of 
our own faculty. Professor Shenk's out- 
standing work as a historian and libra- 
rian has gained him this distinctive place 
among prominent citizens of our country. 

The account of Professor Shenk's at- 
tainments tells of his graduation from 
State Normal School at Shippensburg, 
Pa., in 1894 as the culmination of his 
first real step toward the success he now 
merits. He received his A. 6. from Ur- 
sinus College in 1899, and his A. M. from 
Lebanon Valley College in 1900. Pur- 
suing still farther, Prof. Shenk under- 
took graduate study at the University of 
Wisconsin in 1904. He was appointed 
instructor in political science at Lebanon 
Valley in 1899 and served until 1900, at 
which time he was made professor of his- 
tory and political science, serving in this 
capacity until 1916. He was librarian of 
Lebanon Valley College from 1900-05, 
registrar, 1906-07, dean, 1907-11. Later 
he served as custodian of public records, 
archivist, and historian in the Pennsyl- 
vania State Library from 1916-33. 

Professor Shenk instructed at Y. M. C. 
A. summer schools at Blue Ridge, North 
Carolina, 1916-1919, at Silver Bay, New 
York, 1919, and at Lake Geneva, Wis- 
consin, in 1921. He travelled to Camp 
Mairs, Texas, where he served as educa- 
tional secretary of the Y. M. C. A. from 
1917-18. He also taught in Penn State 
College during the summer of 1925, and 
was an extension lecturer in the years 
1925-26. Since 1918, Dr. Shenk has been 
the secretary of the Pennsylvania Fed- 
eration Historical Societies, and from 
1927-33 he served as executive secretary 
of the Pennsylvania Historical Commis- 
sion. Since 1933 he has assumed full- 
time duties as professor of American 
History at Lebanon Valley College. In 
1926, Dr. Shenk was appointed chairman 
of the Pennsylvania Historical Exhibits 
Committee for the Sesquicentennial Ex- 
position at Philadelphia. He is a mem-

Students Appreciate 
Kryl Symphony Band 

The chapel entertainment of October 
1 1 , Kryl and his symphony band, was 
truly wonderful. The student body was 
seldom more enthusiastic. The symphony 
band followed the program published in 
the last issue of the La Vie Collegienne. 

Bohumir Kryl, the conductor, had with 
him a few famous soloists. It was a dis- 
appointment that Marie Casalova, the 
violiniste, was unable to appear. Miss 
Irma Clow, the harpist, played two very 
beautiful solos. Miss Catharine Reiner, 
the soprano soloist, also sang two num- 
bers. Her dramatic voice was beautiful; 
she showed herself to be a remarkable 
operatic artist. Bohumir Kryl, in addi- 
tion to his position as conductor, is a 
world famous cornetist. His cornet solo 
was most exceptional. The entire pro- 
gram was excellent, a great musical treat 
for our college.

At last Lebanon Valley has made her 
debut into the cultural circles of the 
world. Heretofore, she remained rather 
a little globe of her own, apart, shutting 
out other entertainers, and relying upon 
her own accomplishments for the pleasure 
of the student body. Speakers were gen- 
erally former L. V. students or enthusi- 
asts, and chapel programs consisted of 
student and sometimes faculty talent. 
Now upon realizing her insufficiency she 
has cast her nets abroad in order to catch 
some outside talented ones into her 

The first outstanding example of this 
cultural growth was exhibited last week 
in the splendid concert of Bohumir Kryl 
and his symphony band. The student 
body enthusiastically received the musi- 
cians, but with the performance an- 
nounced days before, posters on all the 
bulletin boards, yet there were several 
vacant chapel seats, especially prominent 
on the south side of the auditorium. It 
seems as though— with such an oppor- 
tunity—every student should gladly turn 
out in solid array to take the advantages 
offered him, but there are evidently some 
who are too disinterested, unappreciative, 
or lazy to make their appearance at any 
truly worthwhile performance. One could 
be safe in saying that would the occasion 
of a pep-meeting arise or a wrestling 
match these absent ones would be promi- 
nent by their attendance. Of course, they 
will argue not every one has the same 
tastes, but it does seem that such splen- 
did opportunities when so generously of- 
fered should be appreciated by all the 
students— male and female. 

"Inheritors" afforded a second splen- 
did opportunity to Lebanon Valley, not 
only to the student body but to outsiders 
as well. The chapel was well filled, and 
the players were enjoyed by all. This 
showed a spirit of cooperation among 
the students and especially among the 
"Wig and Buckle" members who had 
charge of the financial burden. 

The Lebanon Concert Series is a third 
cultural opportunity placed within the 
grasp of the college students— with spe- 
cial tickets at $2 for the season. Thus 
Lebanon Valley has made a splendid Be- 
ginning in her fall program in already in- 
cluding three outstanding features to- 
wards a full cultural program for the 
future betterment of the college. 


Parable on an athlete. 

"Kato's Kommentary." 

"A certain athlete said unto himself, 
'Lo, I will train violently and play furi- 
ously in the football games that are to 
be; then shall I find favor in 'he eyes of 
the co-eds and be as a Big Shot, and the 
house-mother at the Dappa Lodge will 
be no more as a stranger unto me.' 

Then he went and did even as he had 
said. But the Big Game waxed hot and 
the coach said unto him, 'Surely thou 
wilt not let me down in this pickle: play 
the Game!' And his spirit grew hot with- 
in him, and he outstripped himself and 
made three touchdowns. 

And those who played aqainst him 
murmured within themselves, saying, 
'&!!**!?, let us lay for him and squelch 
him lest his team prevail against us and 
men shall say, 'Ye are as lilies!' So they 
fell upon him with great wrath, and 
when the ref's whistle blew he was not, 
for the daylights had left him. 

When he revived in the infirmary he 
was surrounded with flowers but the co- 
eds were far away dancing with the 
lounge-lizards that stalk in darkness. 
Then the athlete lifted up his voice and 
wept, saying, 'What hath it profited me 
this deed that I have done? Lo, I am 
worse off than these softies!' 

Then spake the spirit of his Alma Ma- 
ter saying, 'Pipe down; verily thou hast 
thy reward. Am I not more than that 
blonde you were striving for?' To which 
the athlete replied, 'Aw nerts!' 

Moral: Do what ye do for the love 
of itself. The fruits of victory be sour! 
— The American Campus. 

And may we pass on the advice which 
Allegheny College gives to its Freshmen: 
In case of fire, take your time. Green 
things do not burn easily.— The Indiana 

Goethe visited Schiller one day and, 
not finding him at home, waited in his 
study, where he sat down to a table and 
began to write a few notes. Gradually 
he felt increasingly sick and faint. Frau 
Schiller inquired the cause of this sudden 
illness, and the poet said he thought that 
it was due to a peculiar odor in the room. 
Whereupon she opened a drawer full of 
decayed apples and took them away. Af- 
terwards she explained that for some 
mysterious reason the odor of rotten ap- 
ples stimulated Schiller and he couldn't 
do his best work without it. So that 
which caused a profound constitutional 
disturbance with Goethe was a beneficial 
stimulant to Schiller.

Bogert, professor of organic chemistry, 
Columbia University. 

To save Dad's hard-earned money a 
college student sent home the following 
telegram: "Bruises hurt erased afford 
erector analysis hurt too infectious dead."

Alice is hurt too; in fact, she's dead.") —

The jazz age is at its ragged tail end. 
It is no longer smart to be immoral.— 
Rabbi A. H. Silver. 

What fools these mortals be. 

Declaring that children should be made 
"music conscious" at an earlv, Miss 
Marion Flagg, music instructor at the 
Horace Mann School of Teachers Col- 
lege, Columbia University, recently urged 
that all conversations between children 
and parents in their homes be carried on 
in a sing-song, chanting manner.— Hav- 
er ford News. 

An American wen,t to France, after 
taking 14 conversational lessons, which 
prepared him to ask for butter and sing 
a song written by H;nry IV. But find- 
ing these methods s ow and somewhat 
misleading, he decided to learn by actual 
conversation with aj Frenchman. The 
only one he could find knew as much 
English as he did French, so they de- 
cided to teach each oiher. Their conver- 
sations were something on this order: 

"It calls to walk," said the French- 
man, smiling brilliantly. 

"It is good morning," said the Ameri- 
can, "better than I had extended." 

"I was at you yestairday ze morning, 
but I deed not find." 

"I was obliged to leap early, and I 
was busy standing up straight all around 
the forenoon." 

"The look I prayed iyou send, he came, 
and I thank, but positively are you not 

"Don't talk. Never .talk again. It was 
really nothing anywhere. I had been 
very happy. I reassure." 

"Pardon, I glide, I glode. There was 
the hide of a banana. Did I crash you?" 

"I noticed no insults. You merely 
gnawed my arm." 

They then parted after their most en- 
lightening conversation, with gestures 
and smiles of understanding.

and George Hiltner, harmonized in a so- 
prano rendition of "I Love You Truly." 
Their attractive appearance as well as 
beautiful voices greatly appealed to the 
applauding audience. 

Fifi and Francois, the great adagio 
team, who proved to be Guy Beaver and 
Louis Straub, gave a very clever and 
original dance, ending with the apache 
being dragged out by his frail female 
partner. Appropriate music accompanied 
the dance, some of the numbers being 
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,", "The 
Last Round-up," and the "Funeral 

The famous soprano, Dalmar Rotho- 
loni, or Dale Roth in plain English, 
obliged with, a song entitled "Drifting 
Down the Trail of Golden Dreams" or 
"Mother's False Teeth Will Soon Fit 
Sister." His encore was "On the Road to 
Happiness." His lovely pink and blue 
creation, together with his enchanting 
hair-ribbon and beautiful soprano voice 
made him irresistible. 

Then came the bevy of beautiful 
blondes from Broadway, following an- 
other selection by the trio, "In the Eve- 
ning by the Moonlight." The dancers 
fulfilled all the eager expectation by their 
grace and charm. Among this group were 
Jack Kramer, David Lawson Thompson, 
Kenneth Eastland, and Curvin Thomp- 
son, under the name "Hirsute Girls." A 
grand finale completed the program, dur- 
ing which the trio warbled "Thank You 
for a Lovely Evening.' 

Delta Lambda Sigma 

The Delphian society was represented 
by Catherine Wagner, who announced 
that a skit entitled "An Orphan Asylum" 
was their contribution to the entertain- 
ment. The opening scene showed a 
group of poor little girls under the strict' 
supervision of a harsh matron. Their 
main grievance was having to bathe three 
at a time in a tin tub. 

The decision was formed to rebel at 
the first opportunity. That afternoon sev- 
eral ladies visited the orphanage with the 
view of adopting a girl who would please 
them. During the course of the visit Es- 
ther Bingamen played the piano, Mary 
Webb a saxophone solo of "For All We 
Know," Claire Adams recited "Der 
Sturdy Oak and die Clinging Vine," Cor- 
delia SchaefFer gave a trombone solo, 
and Charlotte Stabley sang "Without A 
Song." Then the girls declared their in- 
dependence—they didn't want to be 
adopted, they wanted to go to Delphian 
Orphan Asylum, for lonely girls. The

Louis Straub Speaks 

At Prayer Meeting 

Last Wednesday's prayer meeting was 
opened with the reading of an appropri- 
ate poem by Frances Keim.. A hymn was 
sung, after which Anna Francis read the 
scripture and led the Lord's Prayer. 
Grace Naugle played a worshipful song 
by Shumann. 

Louis Straub, the speaker of the eve- 
ning, used as his topic "The Person I 
Am and the One I Should Like to Be." 
There was a great deal of courageous 
inspiration in this theme. 

After a hymn had been sung, the 
meeting was closed with the prayer cir- 
cle and benediction. 

program ended with the Delphian song 
by the whole group. 

Characters in the skit were: Matron, 
Marietta Ossi; Daffodil, June Gingrich; 
Geranium, Charlotte Stabley; Petunia, 
Mary Webb; Pansy, Cordelia SchaefFer; 
Marigold, Claire Adams; Delphinium, 
Catherine Wagner; Hyacinth, Esther 
Bingamen; Visitors, Ida Bell Smith, 
Sarah Lupton, Mary March and Romaine 

The skit was clever, and very well en- 
acted, showing signs of preparation, as 
well as originality, with the sales talk 
being made" part of the skit.

The Kalozetean program was opened

Then came a very eerie scene— while

game having ended in a 21-21 tie. 

gloom, the Muhlenberg linesman, coll- 
ated i nto a Dac k, showed plenty of 
p wer and drive every time he lugged 
the leather. There didn't seem to be 
, n uch love in Bloom for the L. V. C. 

Despite the fact that only 7 out of 27 
forward passes attempted by Lebanon 
Valley were completed, the aerial attack 
constantly had the Mules worried, for 
the passes that did click were good for 
long gains. 

Lebanon Valley's football record for 
the year does not look exceptionally im- 
pressive thus far, but marked improve- 
ment is looked for in the near future. 

All those injured in the Muhlenberg 
battle are expected to be back in A-l 
shape in time for the Drexel tilt. 

The Dragons, by the way, had a bit of 
a field day last Saturday at the expense 
of Upsala, 53-6. A total of fi>\ -three 
points, even against a "breather" oppo- 
nent, is not to be sneered upou in any 
team's football records. 

Coach Frock claims that m-my of the 
weaknesses of Lebanon Valley 's attack 
against the Mules could have been coun- 
ter-balanced by the presence of more 
fighting spirit in the squad. He will prob- 
ably rebuild his varsity team for the 
Drexel game. "I'll use fighters if I have 
to bench the whole varsity— experience 
or no experience," says Coach Frock. 

Small college teams of the state are 
9aining no little notoriety by their ex- 
ploits this vear. 

La Salle, coached by Notre Dame's 
famous blocking back, Marty Brill, sur- 
prised Villanova last Saturday and took 
lhe m into camp, 13-6.

Lebanon Valley Football Coaches 

Although the efficient grid machine that coaches "Jerri/" and "Chief" 
unveiled to the football world at State College seems to have struck a temporary 
snag on its way to fame, both mentors and understudies are undaunted. Realiz~ 
ing that they have both the material and the will to win, with the whole hearted 
support of the college behind them our youthful coaches have set about a reorgan- 
ization and^ watch out. Dragons!

Feeser hit left tackle for a tcuchdown 
and Bill Smith added the extra point 
from placement. 

Muhlenberg scored twice in the third 
period to step out in front, 19-7. An off 
tackle slant by Farrel, good for 42 yards, 
put the ball in scoring position on the L. 
V. 18-yard line. Farrel succeeded in mak- 
ing the score two plays later on a 13- 
yard slant off tackle. Soon afterward a 
Valley fumble gave the Mules the oval 
on the L. V. 22-yard line. Three line 
drives failed to gain, but a perfect pass 
from Farrel to Laing was good for a 
touchdown. In the final period, Farrel 
returned one of Rust's kicks 55 yards to 
the 9-yard marker and three plays later 
Bloom hit off tackle for the fourth and 
final tally. 

Injuries to Lebanon Valley backfield 
starters considerably weakened the offen- 
sive and defensive power of the Flying 
Dutchmen. Sheesley and Whiting were 
slowed up considerably by leg -injuries 
and "Scoop" Feeser was hampered by an 
arm injury. "Slim" Sincavage, stellar 
pivot man, was unable to play at all. De- 
spite these handicaps, the Flying Dutch- 
men were outscored only by a 7-5 mar- 
gin in first downs. 


Smith kicked to Farrel who returned 
to his own 44-yard line. On the second 
play Feeser intercepted a Mule aerial on 
the L. V. 35-yard stripe. Rust quick- 
kicked to Farrel on the Mules' 38. Laing 
made 7 off tackle. C. Sponaugle broke 
up an attempted pass, but the Mules got 
a first down on the next play when L. V. 
was off sides. Farrel's fumble was recov- 
ered by Lebanon Valley, and Rust imme- 
diately punted to the Muhlenberg 10- 
yard marker. The Mules were off sides 
on the next play. A forward-lateral pass 
play gained 1 1 yards and Farrel made it 
first down on the 25. Kroske intercepted 
Parrel's pass intended for Laing on Muhl- 

enberg's 31-yard line. Rust, Feeser, and 
Whiting made it first down on the 21. 
Rust circled right end for a touchdown 
but the play was called back as both 
teams were off sides. Rust's pass ground- 
ed, and Smith's try for a field goal was a 
yard wide of the uprights. After an ex- 
change of punts Muhlenberg made it first 
down on the Valley 28, due to two fine 
runbacks by Farrel. W. Bloom went in 
for Laing and made five yards on the 
first play. Farrel was held for no gain 
as the period ended. L. V. C. 0; Muhlen- 
berg 0. 


Farrel slid off tackle for 12 yards. 
Bloom gained eight more to put the ball 
on the 3-yard line. Farrel slipped off 
tackle for a touchdown and Riley's place- 
ment was good, making the score 7 to 0. 
Muhlenberg kicked off and L. V. was 
held, forcing Rust to punt. Muhlenberg 
netted five yards on three plays and 
Laing kicked to Rust on his own 26-yard 
stripe. Whiting was hurt after two 
thrusts at the line and Carchidi replaced 
him. Rust punted to Muhlenberg's 40. 
After an unsuccessful pass Bartleson 
kicked out of bounds on the Valley 38. 
Tindall made 7 on a reverse, but a pass 
was incomplete and Rust punted. Muhl- 
enberg kicked back to Tindall, who re- 
turned to the L. V. 45. Rust heaved a 
long pass to Tindall, who war, stopped 
on Muhlenberg's 25. After two 'ine plays 
had netted two yards and a foi ward was 
incomplete, Patrizio went in and Koehler 
intercepted his first pass on Mhulenberg's 
19. Bartleson kicked to Tindall and a 
penalty against the Mules gave Valley 
the ball on Muhlenberg's 30-yard line. 
Rust's pass to Tindall was incomplete as 
the half ended. Lebanon Valley 0; Muhl- 
enberg 7. 


Muhlenberg received the kick off and 
Bartleson punted on the second play. 
Sheesley made a first down on two plays 
to bring the ball to the Mules' 48. On 
third down, Rust passed to Smith for a 
first down on the 25. Feeser made a yard 
and Sheesley fought his way to the 11- 

yard line for another first down. Feeser 
made two yards but Sheeslev was thrown 
for a five yard loss. An incomplete pass 
gave the Mules the ball on their own 20. 
Bartleson kicked to Feeser on the 35-yard 
line. On the second play, Rust tossed a 
forward to Sheesley, who wiggled his 
way to the three-yard line. On three 
plays Feeser made a touchdown, and 
Smith's perfect placement tied the score, 
7-7. Bloom took the kick off on his own 
26. Three plays netted a first down on 
the Mules' 42. Farrel cut through the 
line and gained 42 yards before he was 
forced out of bounds on the L. V. 18. 
After the Flying Dutchmen held for three 
downs Farrel cut off tackle and scored 
standing up. Smith blocked Riley's try 
for the extra point. L. V. C. 7, Muhlen- 
berg 13. Lebanon Valley received the 
kick off and on the first play Feeser 
fumbled when a flock of Muies hit his 
arm, whicli had been injured in the second 
quarter. Muhlenberg was held twice but 
a pass, Farrel to Laing, was good for a 
touchdown. Riley's try for point was 
wide. Rust returned Riley's kick off to 
his own 24 as the quarter ended. Leba- 
non Valley 7; Muhlenberg 13. 

After two passes were incomplete, 
Sheesley circled end for a first down on 
the L. V. 35. A pass, Rust to Whiting, 
was good for a 30-yard gain. Three more 
forwards were incomplete and Muhlen- 
berg took the ball on the 20-yard line. 
Two line plays failed, and Bartleson's 
kick was blocked, Heish recoveting for 
L. V. on the Mules' 3-yard line. Tindall 
was thrown for a five yard loss. Rust 
lost three more and his pass was incom- 
plete, giving the Mules the ball on their 
20. Bartleson kicked to the Valley 48. 
Rust's forward to Smith was intercepted 
on Muhlenberg's 28. Bloom punted to 
Tindall on the L. V. 26. Two passes 
grounded and Rust kicked to Farrel, who 
returned 55 yards to the L. V. 9-yard 
line. Bloom scored on the third attempt, 
Riley missing the extra point. Lebanon 
Valley made two first downs by the 
aerial route as the game ended. Lebanon 
Valley 7; Muhlenberg 25.

Y" Friendly Hour 

A very delightful friendly hour service 
was held Sunday, October 14, in North 
Hall parlor under the direction of Mar- 
tha Faust. "Day is Dying in the West" 
was the opening song, after which Lois 
Harbold took charge of the scripture les- 
son and prayer. 

This was followed by a piano solo en- 
titled "Lullabye," given by Ruth Buck. 
After the singing of "Fairest Lord 
Jesus," Esther Koppenhaver read a very 
charming little poem, "The Wonder of 
the wut-of-Doors." A quartet composed 
of Grace Naugle, Gayle Mountz, Ruth 
Buck, and Martha Faust, then rendered 
"Saviour Again to Thy Dear 1 Name, We 
Rise." The meeting was closed by a 
group benediction.

"Oracle of Delphi" 
Speaks at Opening 
Program in Hall 


Gods Seek Hand of Fair Pythias, 
Favorite Goddess — Nuptials 

Delta Lambda Sigma presented "The 
Oracle of Delphi" at their opening pro- 
gram on Saturday night. The Delphians 
had as their guests, members of the fac- 
ulty, freshmen, and new students. The 
stage setting was a representation of 
Mt. Parnassus, the home of th; Oracle. 
Pythia, the favorite goddess, was played 
by Miss Catherine Wagner. The gods 
who sought the fair Pythias' hand were 
Romaine Stiles, Ida Belle Smitn, and Ida 
Katherine Hall. Charlotte Stabley, Cor- 
delia Shaeffer, Mary Webb, and Claire 
Adams were the entertainers who came 
to Pythias' court to help celebrate the 
nuptials. Refreshments were then served 
in the parlor. The chaperones were Miss 
Wood, Mrs. Derickson. Miss Keyon, 
Dr. Leitzau, Mrs. Gingrich, and Mrs.

left the hill which the white man had 
wrung by force from the red to be the 
seat of a college that was to perpetuate 
the united spirits of liberty and learning. 

In the second act we are taken to the 
library of this college. The time is Oc- 
tober, 1920. Felix Fejevary, 2nd, now 
chairman of the board of trustees, is in 
consultation with Senator Lewis of the 
finance committee of the state legislature. 
Fejevary wants an appropriation and re- 
calls to the senator that the college has 
been one hundred per cent American dur- 
ing the war and that the students, led by 
his son, have even acted as strike-break- 
ers in a recent labor dispute. The son, 
Horace, is introduced, a youth who thinks 
Morton College is getting socially shab- 
by—too many foreigners— and who just 
now is enraged at certain Hindu stu- 
dents who have pled the cause of the In- 
dian revolutionists and quoted Lincoln 
in defense of their position. Senator 
Lewis thinks Horace a fine specimen. But 
there is a certain Professor Holden who 
does not think that the Hindus ought to 
be deported, who has said that America 
is a traditional asylum of revolutionaries, 
and who seems to be a Bolshevik in 
other ways. Fejevary promises to take 
care of Holden, and the ensuing scene, 
though long drawn out, presents a dra- 
matic picture of the inner lives of these 
men. A member of the third generation, 
Vladeline Fejevary Morton, brings about 
the denouement. To her mind, naturally 

youthful as it is, the hidden contradic- 
tions of the situation are evident. Al- 
though it is two years since the Armis- 
tice yet a boy chum of hers, a conscien- 
tious objector, is still in a narrow and 
noxious cell. The Hindu students who 
are to be sent to certain death are but 
following the doctrine of Lincoln's sec- 
ond inaugural. She interferes in their be- 
half and proclaims in public, crudely but 
effectively, the principles for which her 
two grandfathers founded Morton Col- 
lege. Her offense, under the Espionage 
Act, is serious. Her uncle and her aunt 
plead with her, Holden wants her to let 
herself mature for greater causes, and 
her father's physical condition speaks for 
itself. Madeline is neither priggish nor 
stormy. Some inner purity of soul alone 
prompts her to resist all pleas. Suddenly 
an outcast, she goes out to face her judge 
and suffer her martyrdom. 

The play characters are brilliant, clear- 
cut features. The disintegration of Amer- 
ican idealism is supreme, portrayed by 
the three Fejevarys— father, son, and 

Felix the second remembers his father 
and his inheritance but he has compro- 
mised with reality so long that his sin- 
cerity is thin. His son, Horace, is a 
downright snob and ruffian. Fred Nofer, 
as Felix the first, though playing but a 
small role, pictured well the aristocracy. 
Felix the second was splendid but the 
son Horace was not exactly convincing. 
In fact all the students of Morton Col- 
lege were a bit disappointing. 

The three Morton generations— the 
slow, magnificent old pioneer, his broken 
son, his granddaughter Madeline whose 
even yet fiery nature symbolizes a hope 
for the future— these were awesome. Jas- 
per Deeter's portrayals cannot be de- 
scribed by an amateur critic. As Silas, 
the pioneer, you, saw him as a live, vital 
personage; as Ira, the son, he gave a 
hauntingly real impression of a difficult 
character. Frances Torchiana received 
the acclaim of the entire audience. Made- 
line Morton had a beautiful charm and 
a certain show of sincerity. 

Walter Williams as Professor Holden 
was not enthusiastically received, al- 
though it is but just to censure the Susan 
Glaspell rather than the actor for the role 
is a bit boresome. 

Senator Lewis was probably the char- 
acter most recognizable in daily life. The 
typical pompous, blustering politician was 
Harry Shepard's fine work. 

To some, Grandma was not so con- 
vincing. She seemed a bit too young for 
such a very early settler. About her, 
however, was the vigor and spirit a pio- 
neer would need. Aunt Isabel was the 
emblematic sentimental woman of the 
post-war period not so very unpopular. 

The Hedgerow Theatre players gave 
to Lebanon Valley a treat. Though this 
was probably not the most desirable of 
plays yet Friday was a memorable day 
in that it is certainly only the beginning 
of a long list of dramatic occasions des- 
tined for this campus. 

Philo Entertainers 

Prepare For Smoker 

On Monday noon, October 15, the 
Philokosmian Literary Society held a 
brief business meeting, in which plans 
were made to entertain the freshman at 
a "smoker" on Friday night in Philo hall. 

Lester Krone, the chairman of the ex- 
ecutive committee, appointed several 
committees to take charge of the affair, 
which promises to be very interesting. It 
was decided to secure several speakers 
for the occasion. As for the other fea- 
tures, the famous Philo entertainers will 
strive to outdo themselves in captivating 
the freshmen. Attractive favors will be 
given out.

followed a path to the Quittie. All was 
going well until spotlights were turned 
on the group. On came the sophs! Elea- 
nor Lynch staged the event of the eve- 
ning when, in her hurry to be the first 
non-freshman there, she sank into the 
Quittie up to her knees and struggled 
out dripping wet just as the highly 
amused frosh turned the lights on her. 

The unexpected thing happened when, 
on the arrival of the sophs and various 
upper-classmen, the party continued to 
be a very sociable affair, even though 
the chaperones had not yet arrived. It 
seems that the frosh were impressed with 
the good behavior of their unexpected 
guests. Beamesderfer fanned the fire with 
his hat and carried logs with other non-

to forward plans for a "victory dance," 
providing the place is accepted by the 
activities committee. The dance will be 
the first for the current term to be held 
away from the campus. Special invita- 
tions will be sent to former members and 
alumni. Bids from popular orchestras are 
being considered. President Sincavage 
stated to the club that "we will give to 
the discriminating students of Lebanon

Through the cooperation of Dr. S. H. 
Derickson the club has the privilege to 
show to the student body a moving pic- 
ture of the football games. These pic- 
tures will give the play for play account 
of the games. A small sum will be 
charged to defray the expense of pro- 
ducing the pictures. 

Book Review 

"Anthony Adverse" has for some time 
beer, one of the most talked about books 
cu : America. It is the life story of a most 
unusual young man. The author, Hervey 
Allen, an American college professor, 
carries us with the world in that exciting 
period of history when Napoleon was 
the center of European affairs and our 
nation was just struggling to its feet. 

Brought up first in a convent, then in 
a large merchant firm in Italy, Anthony 
first sails to Havana on an important 
commercial mission. The story follows 
him to Africa, where he becomes a pros- 
perous slave trader, then to Europe where 
ho mingles with the financiers of all 
countries, the court circles, and diplo- 
matic leaders of the chief European na- 
tions. We are introduced to the great 
Napoleon. Then the story takes us to 
the New World where we see Anthony 
as a prosperous cotton planter in Louisi- 
ana and finally Spanish prisoner in Mexi- 
co City. So very wide is the scope of 
this book that no one but a scholar could 
have written it. It has been termed the 
most "ambitious" American book. 

Although we are given an enormous 
fund of knowledge, we are not given 
mere dry information. Nothing could be 
more intensely fascinating than the de- 
scription of the African trading post in 
the height of the slave trade period. 
There is the romance of European court 
life. There is also the romance of old 
New Orleans and the realism of the 
American frontier. Always there is the 
appeal of distant places in a distant time. 
One vivid incident after another has been 
fused into a most entertaining life story 
of a most interesting young man.

Dr.Ly nc h Meets 
Albert Einstein 


Honored By Personal Introduc- 
tion—Very Favorably 

The college president recently had the 
distinguished privilege of attending the 
opening exercises of Yeshiva College in 
Ne w York City, where he met the emi- 
nent Dr. Albert Einstein, world-renowned 
scientist Dr. Lynch was given a per- 
sonal introduction to the famous Ger- 
man who he asserts "has a big heart as 
well as a big brain." 

Dr. Lynch, being one of the first dis- 
tinguished visitors to arrive, was early 
brought to the doctor's attention in the 
great room which had been arranged for 
the convenience of the visitants, and in- 
cidentally, signed his name directly un- 
der that of Dr. Einstein in the guest 
book. "Dr. Einstein," Dr. Lynch vividly 
describes, "is a very large, stout man, 
with a bronzed complexion and a mas- 
sive head covered with white hair that 
tapers to a point, making him appear 
very tall. He has a very affable hand- 
shake, and on each introduction he rose 
and greeted the newcomer with his fa- 
miliar, friendly German smile. He is a 
very modest man, and on the platform 
this modesty becomes almost timidity. 

In introducing the eminent doctor, 
Governor Lehman of New York State 
wittily, yet politely presented him as 
"Professor Albert Einstein, a citizen of 
the universe." To introduce him as a 
German was to give vent to open criti- 
cism, yet he was not an American citi- 
zen. Governor Lehman took the safest 
way out. Dr. Einstein had refused many 
degrees from various larger universities 
and colleges but he accepted the degree 
of Doctor of Humane Letters from Ye- 
shiva College, an institution of less then 
two hundred students, because the col- 
lege holds to a spiritual conception of 
We, a spiritual conception that tran- 
scends the material for the finer. It is 
{ his attitude of Professor Einstein plus 
his remarkable modesty that most im- 
pressed Dr. Lynch.

Shearer Presents 

Debating Subjects 

There was a meeting of all those inter- 
ested in debating on Thursday, October 
18, at one o'clock. Its real purpose was 
to find out just exactly what new ma- 
terial there was to take the place of the 
members of the team who graduated. 

Louise Shearer, manager of the girls' 
team, presented the three subjects that 
were selected by the Debating Associa- 
tion of Pennsylvania Colleges, at its 
conference in the Penn-Harris hotel, Har- 
risburg, several weeks ago. The subjects 
in order of their choice are as follows: 
Resolved, that the nations should agree to 
prevent the international ^shipment of 
arms and munitions; Resolved, that 
Pennsylvania should adopt a system of 
socialized medicine; Resolved, that a col- 
lege man graduate earning a minimum 
salary of $1200 a year should marry be- 
fore he is 25. 

The first topic was selected for de- 
bates with other schools, but it was de- 
cided that the third question would be 
very interesting for an experiment here 
on our own campus. 

Dr. E. H. Stevenson stated that since 
the International Relations Club is like- 
wise interested in the subject of arms 
and munitions, it would be very wise for

Chemists Meet At 
Dr. Bender's Home 


Shenk, Muth, Scheaffer, Trace 
Developments of Chemistry 
From Early Times 

The second regular meeting of the 
Chemistry Club was held at the home of 
Dr. Bender Tuesday evening, October 
23. The meeting was opened by Presi- 
dent Magee who outlined the aims of 
the club for the year. Trips to various 
chemical industrial plants, lectures on 
the practical application of chemistry, 
and also plays dealing with incidents in 
the development of chemistry were sug- 
gested. Several new members were add- 
ed to the roll. 

Mr. Magee then turned the meeting 
over to the program chairman, Vernon 
Hemperly, who presented the speakers of 
the evening. The first of these was a 
newcomer both to the campus and the 
club, Boyd Scheaffer, who presented a 
very enlightening paper entitled "The 
Origin of Present Day Chemistry." He 
began his development with the alchem- 
ist who he said was nothing more than a 
trader of fraud and deceit and whom he 
compared to the modern oil stock broker. 
He continued by saying that there was

The smoker which Philo held last Fri- 
day night for the new men students and 
other non-members proved to be a huge 
success. The large number present was 
obviously delighted with the musical 
numbers offered and thrilled by the 
characteristic PL lo spirit as displayed by 
the various speakers on the program, to 
say nothing of the refreshments served 
by the committee on "gastronomical 

Philo hall was filled to overflowing 
when Chief Metoxin, who was to be the 
principal speaker, arrived on the scene. 
He was greeted with an outburst of 
cheers and applause as he entered. 

President Palatini ascended the ros- 
trum, took his seat as the presiding offi- 
cial, rapped for order, and announced 
that the evening's festivities were under 
way. In order that Philo's characteristic 
spirit of reverence might be maintained, 
Louis Straub, chaplain of the society, 
read an appropriate chapter of scripture 
and led in a prayer. At the direction of 
the president, Kenneth Sheaffer, the sec- 
retary, and Robert Kell, one of the ser- 
geants-at-arms, assumed their respective 
posts. The secretary then officially an- 
nounced the program of the evening. 

The first number consisted of a vocal 
solo, "The Last Roundup," presented by 
Dale Roth, who accompanied himself 
with the guitar. 

Charles Bartolet, an old-time Philo- 
kosmian of athletic fame, next delivered 
a stirring address on "Philo's Place on 
the Football Team." Mr. Bartolet, who

Dance Sponsored 

Homecoming Day 

As a concluding feature to Home- 
coming Day, on November 10, the 
"L" Club will sponsor a dance. "Al" 
Sincavage, the president, has named 
his committees which are as follows: 
Sail, Miller and Feeser; orchestra, Pa- 
trizio and Rust; tickets, Smith and 
Arndt. The final plans have not been 
fully arranged as yet, but as far as is 
known the dance will be held in the 
armory in Lebanon, from 8:30 to 
11:45. Tickets may be purchased 
from any member of the "L" Club, 
for the standard "L" Club price of 
one dollar, "stag or drag."

Last Half Rally 
Enables Dragons 
To Defeat L. V. C. 

Lebanon Valley's veteran center,

game of the season against the Dragons. 
His early season shoulder injury seems 
to have come around O.K., for his pass- 
ing was accurate and his defensive work 
was superb. 

Clionian Theatre 
Introduces Nell

Refreshments And 


Early Safety and Late Touch- 
downs Give Drexel Win, 
8 to 7 

The Clionian Literary Society formally 
opened the hall last Friday evening when 
entertainment was presented for the mem- 
bers and their guests. 

A new addition to the little theatre 
movement is the Clio Theatre. With 
great difficulty the curtain was opened 
and the audience was given a glimpse of 
real vivid melo-drama, "Wild Nell, the 
Pet of the Plains," or "Her Final Sacri- 
fice." The characters in the order of ap- 
pearance were Lady Vere de Vere, the 
English heiress, Helen Earnest; Hand- 
some Harry, the king of the cowboys, 
Kotty McAdam; Sitting Bull, the Indian 
chief and his accomplice, Emma Rein- 
bold and Fran Holtzman, and finally, 
Wild Nell, Lois Harbold. The heroic 
life of Wild Nell brought tears to the 
eyes of many but not, fortunately, by 
weeping. The story events were read by 
Maxine Earley. More talent was dis- 
covered: Iva Claire Weirick made a 
passable cactus plant while Anna Mary 
Erdman and Esther Koppenhaver ap- 
peared as a prairie dog hut. 

(Continued on Page 4, Column 3) 

The Flying Dutchmen put up a strong 
battle against Drexel Saturday but failed 
by the narrowest of margins in their third 
attempt to break into the win column. 
The Dragons eked out an 8-7 victory to 
the infinite joy of 3,000 Dad's Day spec- 
tators at Philadelphia. 

Coach "Jerry" Frock presented a re- 
vamped and rejuvenated lineup at the 
outset. The revised edition outplayed the 
Drexelites during the first half to lead 7-2 
at half time, but the Dragons came back 
strong to outplay the Valleyites in the 
closing session and push over a last- 
period touchdown to avenge last year's 
humbling 16-6 defeat. 

A good blocking back was uncovered 
in the person of "Chick" Furlong, who 
was moved from the line to the fullback 
post. He saw service in all but a few of 
the closing minutes of play and performed 
capably in his new position. Unfortu- 
nately he pulled up with an ankle injury 
and may be lost to the Blue and White 
for a while. X-ray pictures show that 
there are no bones broken, but the ankle 
is badly swollen and "Chick" is forced 
to use crutches to get around. 

Charles "Smoky" Rust, flashy quarter- 
back, also suffered an ankle injury and 
saw little service against Drexel. His 
punting, passing, and running were great- 
ly missed by the Blue and White. 

The L. V. C. gridders got off to a bad 
start and found themselves on the short 
end of a 2-0 count before the game was 
eight minutes old. Left halfback Sam 
Potter planted a beautiful coffin-corner 
kick out of bounds on Lebanon Valley's 
two-yard line. In attempting to run the 
ball out, Tindall stepped back over the 
goal line to avoid a tackier and Clinton 
Smullen, Dragon guard, broke through 
and nailed the Blue and White back be- 
hind the line for a safety. 

The Blue and White staged a come- 
back in the second period to score a 
touchdown and step into the lead. Car-

Clio Anniversary 

Plans Under Way 

Green Freshmen Frolic on Verdant Campus 

The campus of Lebanon Valley be- 
came a playground on Wednesday af- 
ternoon while the frosh girls acted their 
ages for a while. The sophs invited 
these young "ters to a kids' party. The 
children were arrayed in short, ruffled 
party dresses. The young child in the 
pink gingham and sunbonnet was dressed 
very appropriately for her job as cheer- 
leader. The youngster with the long 
flowing yellow hair won herself the title 
of the Alice of Wonderland of Lebanon 
Valley campus. Her partner in the blue 

linen was an effigy of a Dresden doll. 

The nasty sophs lined up the kids in a 
parade-like formation. The frosh smiled 
and were elated that they were to be re- 
viewed. But much to the chagrin of some 
and happiness of the others, they were 
marched before the male habitation. 
Heads popped out of the windows. The 
fire escapes were crowded with anxious 
spectators. Many of the frosh were so 
conceited as to think they were much 
sought-after females. But much to their 
amazement they were greeted with bags 

of water. The dripping darlings daddled 
to the dormitory semi-drowned. 

After playing a few strenuous games 
such as leap frog, farmer in the dell, and 
drop the handkerchief, the youngsters 
seated themselves on the steps of North 
Hall porch. Under the capable direction 
of "Bunny" as their cheer-leader, they 
yelled and sang, razzing the sophs, and 
praising themselves and juniors. The 
nursery rhyme ditty which they sang

Many moons have passed, and once 
more it is time for the members of Kappa 
Lambda Nu to begin preparations for 
the exhilarating annual anniversary. 
Once again these coy Clionian co-eds 
are getting in tune for their gala affair 
which takes place Saturday evening, 
November 28. 

"Kotty" McAdam, anniversary presi- 
dent of Clio, has just announced her 
committees, and it certainly looks as if 
it is going to be a gay old time. 

The favor and invitation committee 
consists of Emma Reinbold, Marion Lei- 
sey, Virginia Britton, Eleanor Lynch, and 
Helen Summy. 

The girls who will endeavor to find a 
place for the dance are Mary Batz, Fran- 
ces Holtzman, Geraldine Harkins, Jean 
Harnish, and Lena Cockshott. 

Last but not least, there is a decora- 
tion and chaperon committee, consisting 
of Ruth Buck, Eleanor Engle, Sara 
Meckley, Irma Keiffer, and Louvain

"What is so rare as a day in June? 
Then if ever come perfect days—-" 

But have you ever stopped to consider 
the absolute beauty of a gloriously clear, 
cool October day when the blue heavens 
are covered with floating, fleecy, white 
clouds, and the earth is strewn with parti- 
colored leaves? Autumn is regal in its 
beauty of golden browns, brilliant reds, 
and soft yellows. 

The college campus at this particular 
season has assumed an especially gor- 
geous appearance. The trees in their 
splendor, their magnificent coloring, the 
grass in its green richness, and its pro- 
tecting bed of fallen leaves catch the eye 
of every individual, and who can help 
but exclaim at the wonders of nature? 

One maple tree in particular seems to 
stand out above all the others. Its 
orange foliage melts into the green and 
red of the surrounding trees and creates 
a brilliant foreground for the stately ivy- 
covered library. 

A trip through the mountains in In- 
dian summer is indeed unsurpassed even 
by the budding trees in spring. A slope 
encased in colors, lavishly brushed on 
by nature's paint. The last fall flowers 
bid summer good-bye—the lingering gol- 
den rod, the yellow chrysanthemum, the 
last rose of summer, the ragged asters, 
and the loitering petunia parade their 
fading beauty before their final winter 

In this glorious season one should en- 
deavor to spend some time of every day 
out of doors admiring the colorful sce- 
nery and becoming familiar with the 
trees, their kind, and peculiarities. The 
name plates on our campus trees afford 
every student art unusually fine oppor- 
tunity to become really familiar with 
these children of nature. 

Edwin Curran, a modern American 
poet, describes his feeling for autumn in 
these lines: 

"The music of the autumn winds 
sings low, 
Down by the ruins of the painted 

Where death lies flaming with a 
marvelous glow, 

Upon the ash of rose and daffo- 

But I can find no melancholy here 

To see the naked rocks and thin- 
ning trees; 

Earth strips to grapple with the 
winter year— 

I see her gnarled hills plan for 


Average college professors today are 
"muddle-headed," according to Dr. Bruce 
Raup of Teachers College, Columbia 

Raup produced statistics which he 
said showed: the average college profes- 
sor can't think clearly; he is unable to 
analyze problems thoroughly and logi- 
cally; he is a "yes" man; he doesn't 
know anything about political, social, 
and economic problems which do not 
bear a direct relation to the subject he 
teaches, and he cares less. 

These statements were based on the 
replies to a questionnaire which he sent 
out to over 2,000 educators throughout 
the United States. 

Of course, this is no reflection on you, 
profs, he said "average." 

Two men now in the limelight of pub- 
lic attention are Bruno Hauptmann and 
Robert Edwards, the former tried for the 
murder of the Lindbergh baby, and the 
latter for the death of his sweetheart. 
Anyone watching the reaction of the peo- 
ple to the development of the trial would 
have formed strong opinions as to the 
merciless curiosity directed against these 
unfortunate victims of circumstances. 
Guilty or not guilty, the ordeal of these 
public prisoners is truly pitiable. Sensa- 
tion-seekers even forgot all delicacy and 
humanity in bringing before all eyes 
every fervent love-epistle from Robert 
Edwards to his fiancee. If it were at all 
necessary, one example would have suf- 
ficed. Then the self-contented, smug 
readers pompously give the sentence, 
"The electric chair is too good for Ed- 
wards. He must be a scoundrel," hap- 
pily forgetting incidents in their own 
lives which would not have borne in- 
spection. It seems all too easy to cast 
the first stone. 

According to the Kentucky Kernel, 
(U. of K.) there is a stupendous change 
taking place on the campus today. 

"The day of the 'polite moron' seems 
distinctly past. Time was when the im- 
peccable frame of this personage loomed 
large upon the campus horizon. Mere 
grinds, book-worms, and scholars were 
dirt before his elegance. He trod the 
campus amid the jungle of many watch- 
chain keys and the aroma of gin, per- 
fume, and ignorance. But his day is defi- 
nitely doomed on the campus. Somehow 
it has taken the depression to suggest to 
young men and women that one doesn't 
succeed in life by failing in college and 
that courtesy and smartness in the polite 
sense make the gentleman and lady. Such 
is the evolution as it walks hand in hand 
with fate and time." 

Well, all we can say is that there 
seem to be very many throwbacks to 
the "politely moronic" era. 

An old Indian burial ground, reminis- 
cent of the days when redskins and buf- 
falo roamed the prairies, was laid bare 
by a high wind near Wildrose, N. D. 

The winds, causing a shift of millions 
of tons of soil over the state, brought to 
light hundreds of relics, including arrow- 
heads, spearheads, stone tomahawk heads, 
copper dishes, bullet jackets, and loaded 
shells. The burial ground is on top of a 
hill and is believed to have been the site 
of an Indian settlement for many genera- 

Moser (in passing an automobile 
graveyard with sheep grazing among the 
deceased): Gentlemen, there's where we 
get our "steel wool." 

Delphian Presents 

"The Highwayman" 

— — 


Old Legend Enacted and Seven 
Candles Float Down 

Delphian again followed the trail to 
the old Delphian oak out along the Quit- 
tie on Tuesday. The. trail was blazed by 
June Gingrich and Estelle Delgado. As 
the hikers approached the place where 
the picnic was to be held they were 
greeted by Catherine Wagner, the Del- 
phian president. 

Charlotte Stabley led the group in 
songs until it was time for the program. 
"The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes 
was the theme worked out in a skit. 
Charlotte Stabley was the bold highway- 
man who came riding; Betty Ford was 
Elsa, the inn-keeper's daughter who spun 
red ribbons into her hair; Cordelia Shaef- 
fer and Romaine Stiles were the soldiers; 
June Gingrich was Tom the hostler's 
son. "Cappy" Wagner proved her 
worth by sitting on a log and getting 
her feet wet while she officiated as the 
sound effects. Marietta Ossi read the 

As soon as the darkness had settled 
Charley Hauck and Charley Kinney built 
a big bonfire. The food was passed 
around for seconds, thirds, fourths, and 
some fifths. Kinney decided that he would 
make a good statue and so posed on top 
of the milk can. He looked very much 
like a wooden statue seen in front of a 
cigar store in Lebanon. 

Catherine Wagner read the old legend 
of Delphian, and Charlotte Stabley sang. 
The seven candles were sent floating 
down the stream, and many of the hikers 
remained long after the picnic had brok- 
en up to see the candles come over the

With its stern and awful lesson— 
With its great, grim, moral lesson, 
And its melody of music 
Like the rippling of the waters 
On the lonely Susquehanna— 
Like the whispering and the sighing 
Of the breeze among the tree tops 
In the forest by the river, 
I should answer— I should tell you, 
"Come with me to Popcorn Center- 
To my home in Popcorn Center, 
And interrogate at leisure 
All the humble folk who dwell there— 
All the rustics and the yokels- 
All the citizens bucolic. 
They will tell you, if you listen, 
Eagerly the thrilling story— 
Word for word the selfsame story, 
That my pen is now inscribing." 

Part the first (and last) 
Forth onto the village main street 
Strolled our hero, Mr. Sloppy- 
Mr. Elmer Edgar Sloppy, 
With a free and easy motion, 
With a firm and stately swagger. 
Forth he strode in regal splendor, 
Promenading on the sidewalk. 
On his head he wore a derby 
Tilted at a rakish angle, 
Making youthful his appearance, 
Although he was over forty! 
Fastened to his shirt of orchid— 
On his silken shirt of orchid 
Loomed his collar— stiff— gigantic- 
Straight and high, with snowy white- 

Fresh from Shultz's Elite Laundry! 

'Neath his double chin in splendor, 
Blazing forth in all its glory, 
Hung a neck tie, colored crimson. 
Like a comet in the heavens. 
Flashed his neck tie, colored crimson! 
As the red rose in the morning 
Nods and dances in the south wind, 
So the crimson neck tie nodded— 
Undulating on his bosom. 

' v 

Coat he wore none, for the climate 
Is quite mild in Popcorn Center. 
And besides, how could the orchid 
Shirt of his attract attention 
If there were a coat upon it? 

In his hand he carried proudly 
(Swinging it with calm abandon) 
A cane of oriental pattern- 
Genuine Korean bamboo. 
On his feet of huge proportions 
Were a pair of cow-hide slippers- 
Real, imported cow-hide slippers- 
Polished vigorously with goose grease, 
Till they shone with brilliant lustre- 
Like a precious stone in star-light- 
Like the onyx stone in moonlight. 

True, he was a handsome fellow. — 
Mr. Elmer Edgar Sloppy. 
From his visage beamed a radiance 
As he winked and doffed his derby 
To a crowd of winsome damsels 
Who emerged from Pete's Emporium- 
Pete's Tonsorial Emporium. 
But instead of sweetly bowing 
With expressions of "How handsome!" 
As our hero had expected, 
When they saw him thus approaching, 
First they gazed in open wonder, 
Giggling amid their blushes- 
Then broke out in fitful laughter— 
In a sudden cachinnation! 
Loud they shrieked in boisterous uproar 
Letting out spasmodic guffaws- 
Startling all the peaceful village 
With this sudden mirthful outburst— 
Noisily they roared with laughter 
Till they almost were exhausted, 
(Puzzled by these strange proceedings 
All abashed stood Elmer Sloppy). 
They retreated, still convulsing 

With the spasms of their laughter— 
With hyterical confusion 
Turned and fled up Hogan's Alley 
Till the ringing of their voices — 
Till the pealing of their laughter 
Died away within the distance. 
For our dashing, handsome hero 
Mr. Elmer Edgar Sloppy, 
Usually so very careful— 
So fastidious and careful 
Had on this occasion blundered, 
And forgot to put his pants on!

is very popular on the campus because 
of his pleasing personality and fighting 
spirit, made an ardent appeal for supp 0rt 
of the team. 

The famous Philo quartette, consisting 
of Dale Roth, George Hiltner, Samuel 
Harnish, and Lester Krone, next rendered 
two very pleasing numbers, "A Cow- 
boy's Dream" and "Eleven More Months 
and Ten More Days." 

The i feature speaker of the evening, 
Chief Metoxin, who is assistant coach 
of the Lebanon Valley football team, was 
then presented. The Chief, who had been 
a Philokosmian here when he was a stu- 
dent a few years ago, referred with glow- 
ing reminiscence to by-gone days in the 
society. He also stressed in an eloquent 
way the essentiality of cooperative moral 
support in reference to the team. He 
emphatically declared that neither the 
true athlete nor the tru? booster knows 
of such a word as defeat. His thrilling 
message was well received by the audi- 

Philo's golden-voiced tenor, Mr. Roth, 
again appeared, diffidently complaining 
that his repertoire was being badly al- 
tered by the insertion of too many re- 
quest numbers. He sang "Whoa, Mule, 
Whoa," and for the encore which he 
was unanimously importuned to give, he 
presented "Home on the Range" with a 
yodeling climax. 

Louis Straub, indulging in some very 
superfluous circumlocution, then "batted 
off" for a short time. He outlined first 
the perils of "batter-offer" and then the 
values to be gained through membership 
in literary societies in general and Philo 
in particular. 

The quartette was then recalled to 
sing "Lamp Lighting Time in the Val- 
ley," which, they rendered in a delightful 
way. At this « point, however, the pro- 
gram was interrupted by the appearance 
of a very pompous looking gentleman 
who carried sundry boxes, cases, and 
cartons of eats, drinks, and smokes. The 
entire audience rose to its feet and jubi- 
lantly sang the "Alma Mater," after 
which it attacked the aforementioned de- 
licacies with enthusiasm and gusto. This, 
with a few more well known songs, in 
which everyone joined, terminated the

Well, well, well! The Flying Dutch- 
men haven't gotten a start on their zoo 
tk The Lions, Mules, and Dragons 
wer e all a little too tough. How about 


the Delaware Mudhens, boys? 

The Delaware gridders have an im- 
pressive record to date. They opened 
t he season by defeating the strong St. 
Joseph's outfit and held Hampden-Sid- 
ne y to a scoreless draw last Saturday. 

Quite a few Valley footballers who 
have seen considerable action as substi- 
tutes gained starting posts for the first 
time when the Flying Dutchmen lined up 
against Drexel. 

Henry Ricker, tackle from Carlisle, and 
Boyd Sponaugle, end from Hershey, 
served as replacements under "Hooks" 
Mylin last year but were in the lineup 
.'or the opening whistle for the first time. 

Arthur 'Heisch, left end, Gordon Dav- 
ie:, left guard, Peter Klipa, right guard, 
Frank Rozman, right tackle, and John 
Tindall, back, are all newcomers who 
showed enough stuff to nose veterans 
out of starting positions. 

Carchidi, former John Harris High 
school star, played most of the game and 
was one of the main cogs in the Leba- 
non Valley second-period touchdown 

When "Scoop" Feeser plunged over 
the goal from the one-yard line and Bill 
Smith kicked the extra point, Lebanon 
Valley was out in front for the first time 
since November 18, 1933, when Drexel 
was headed, 16-6, at Lebanon. L. V. C. 
scored their touchdown after Albright 
had scored theirs in last year's; 6-6 tie. 
'he 1933 P. M. C. qame was a scoreless 
draw, and the Flying Dutchmen never 
^d State or Muhlenberg this year, air 
though they were on even terms with the 
Mules for a while. 

Penn State's show of power in down-

Delaware will be out to avenge a 1933 
13-7 setback on Saturday, and from all 
appearances they will have a strong, 
hard-fighting outfit. Last week's score- 
less tie with the Hampden-Sidney eleven 
looms all the more impressive when it is 
disclosed that Delaware made nine first 
downs to two for their Southern oppo- 
nents and were continually threatening 
to score. In the final quarter a placement

Thompson, Delaware fullback, failed by 
inches to register three points and vic-

chidi was sent into the struggle at quar- 
terback for L. V. C, and he and "Scoop" 
Feeser started an offensive drive that was 
halted only when the Dragons held for 
downs on the six-yard line. Potter's at- 
tempt to kick out of danger carried only 
to the 25-yard stripe, and Feeser and 
Carchidi again went to work. These two 
backs battered the Dragon line and a 
forward from Carchidi to Feeser put the 
pigskin on Drexel's seven-yard line. 
From that point Feeser and Carchidi 
worked the ball up on line bucks, and 
Feeser finally plunged over from the one- 
yard mark. Bill Smith added the extra 
point on a placement kick and Lebanon 
Valley led an opponent for the first time 
this year. 

Drexel's Dragons came back strong af- 
ter intermission and a partially blocked 
punt laid the foundation for a victorious 
touchdown march. Pete Stevens, Drexel 
guard, partially blocked one of Feeser's 
punts and Wallace made a fair catch on 
the Lebanon Valley 20-yard mark. After 
being held for three downs, the Dragons 
completed a pass to gain a first down on 
the Valley seven-yard line. On three 
plays the Flying Dutchmen pushed the 
Dragons back to the 11 -yard stripe, and 
on fourth down, with the Blue and White 
backfield expecting a pass, Potter slid 
off right tackle from kick formation, 
skirted the end, and scored standing up 
to push the Dragons out in front, 8-7, 
the final figures. 

First downs for the game were even, 
each team totalling nine. Lebanon Val- 
ley gained six in the first half and three 
in the last, while Drexel garnered two 
in the first half and seven in the final.

for the purpose of discussing every angle 
of the question. 

The following people were present at 
the meeting: Dr. E. H. Stevenson, Prof.

L. V. Band Collects 

Only two dollars and fifty cents 
more and the goal set at seventy-five 
dollars will be reached. The money 
that was collected in chapel last Fri- 
day plus the contributions of the fac- 
ulty will make it possible for the band 
to accompany the football team to all 
the games. President Lynch thanked 
the student body Monday morning in 
chapel for the way they cooperated 
in making this possible. 

Campus Cuts 

Our campus turns classical. Have you 
noticed the young cultural enthusiast 
wearing the toga? Get an eyeful while 
you can. The adoption of the toga as 
a universal campus garb does not seem 
probable. Perhaps frosh will learn how 
to behave. 

The last few weeks have revealed the 
presence of a young man in the dormi- 
tory of most brilliant and daring mind. 
After climbing out of one window, crawl- 
ing along a ledge, and scrambling in an- 
other window to get some things in a 
locked room, he suddenly remembered 
that the keys were in his pocket. Well, 
that's one way to get exercise and inci- 
dentally to show the co-eds just what 
one can do. 

Did you know that Ted Loose hates 
to use keys when he finds the door to 
his room locked? He climbs in the win- 
dow? Ask him. 

Did you know that Elwood "Potatoe" 
Needy had a date the other night and 
spent the time trying to lose his pals 
who were following him in another car? 

Did you know that Denton wasn't sick 
when he went to the infirmary but did 
get a bad cold after he did get there? We 
hear that he was well taken care of by 
sundry persons. 

Did you notice how last year's cham- 
pion wall flower, Charles Kinney, has 
been stepping out with a certain tall 
brunette? He dances now. 

Did you hear of the world's worst 
trick? Denton borrowing money from 
Barney Mentzer to put gas in Charley 
Hauck's car so he could go out and 
break up Barney's date. 

Did you know that a Poole has now 
become a Puddle? 

Did you know that Lyle Moser has 
added to his zoo? First it was a crow,

Lancaster Concert 
Will Open Musical 
Association Season 


Nikolai Sokoloff, Leader of Or- 
chestra — Concert at Colo- 
nial Theatre 

Lancaster's Community Concert Asso- 
ciation will open the season with the pre- 
sentation of the New York Symphony 
Orchestra, October 28, in the Colonial 
Theatre. This famous orchestra is under 
the baton of Nikolai Sokoloff, the for- 
mer conductor of the Cleveland Sym- 

The program is a brilliant and varied 
one, featuring compositions by Brahms, 
Tchaikovsky, Wagner, Rabaad, and 
Gliere. The first number, "Academic 
Overture," will be especially interesting 
to college students. It was composed by 
Johannes Brahms as a thesis for his de- 
gree from the University of Breslau in 
1881. It depicts the carefree existence of 
student life, and then lapses into a sadder 
vein reminiscent of college days which 
pass too quickly. 

Another outstanding number on the 
program will be the orchestral interlude 
from Wagner's opera "The Dusk of the 
Gods." This overture continues the ad- 
ventures of Siegfried and Brunnhilde. 

Undoubtedly, Reinhold Gliere's "Rus- 
sian Sailor Dance" from his ballet "The 
Red Poppy" will be a surprise well re- 
ceived by the audience. It is a boister- 
ously lilting tune, characteristically Sov- 
iet and more forceful than our modern

Melodrama First 
Production for 
"Wig and Buckle" 


Probable Date November 13 
— Place, Attic of Wallace 

"The Man in the Bowler Hat" by A. 
A. Milne is a "terribly exciting affair" 
in other words. This piece of exagger- 
ated melodrama has been chosen by the 
"Wig and Buckle" as its first production. 

The story has two common ordinary 
people, John and Mary. These are per- 
sonified by Charles Hauck and Rose Die- 
ter. The gallant hero is Charles Fur- 
long, and the heroine "Kotty" McAdam. 
The chief villain is Allan Steffy and the 
bad man Kenneth Sheaffer. 

The whole play takes place in a com- 
,mon living room, within a very short 
time when a series of strange incidents 
occur in close succession. It is to be pre- 
sented in the attic of the home of Dr. 
and Mrs. Wallace. 

This affair, which will open the sea- 
son, will be given on or about Novem- 
ber 13. * 

The technical staff consists of: direc- 
tor, Henry Palatini; lighting, Harold 
Phillips; stage setting, Miller Schmuck; 
make-up, Janet Holsinger and Maxine 

The "Wig and Buckle" welcomes all 
new members and old ones, as well as

Opening Session 
Green Blotter Club 
At Struble Home 


New Members To Be Elected — 
Themes Handed In No- 
vember 1 

The Green Blotter Club held its first 
meeting Thursday, October 18, at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble. Those 
present were: George Hiltner, Marietta 
Ossi, Louis Straub, Ida Katherine Hall, 
Adam Bigler, Maxine Earley, and Dr. 
and Mrs. Struble. 

The following people read articles 
which they had written: Ida Katherine 
Hall— A true relation of an estranged ro- 
mance, Maxine Early— a character inter- 
pretation, and Adam Bigler— a discourse 
on technocracy. Though Mr. Straub had 
nothing prepared he favored the group 
with some of his humorous poetry. 

A business meeting followed, in which 
the club members decided that all fresh- 
men who wish to complete for member- 
ship to the club should hand their themes 
to Dr. Struble by November 1, 1934. 
There is also an opening for two junior 
girls, and the club asks all junior girls 
who are interested to compete. 

The number elected will be two girls 
and two boys from each class, making 
the total number sixteen.

nothing scientific in their methods, and 
that they shrouded their labors in ut- 
most secrecy. Their primary aim was to 
transmit baser metals into gold. 

Wilbur Shenk then gave a very inter- 
esting discussion on the origin of or- 
ganic chemistry. He pointed out how the 
animate and inanimate fields of chemistry 
were once considered entirely separate, 
and how the synethesis of urea, an or- 
ganic compound, brought the two to- 
gether. He also gave a vivid description 
of how the idea of the benzene ring was 

John Muth at this point presented a 
summary of the development of physical 
chemistry. He said that the science as 
such is only 14 years old, but that the 
principles involved date back to the time 
of Pythagoras. He mentioned many im- 
portant discoveries and their discoverers 
among which was Priestly, the discoverer 
of oxygen, who lived in Sunbury, Pa. 
His discussion was climaxed by the con- 
sideration of the discovery of radium by 
Madame and Pierre Curie. 

The meeting was then thrown open for 
general discussion, followed by adjourn-

The opening president, Helen Earnest, 
introduced next Rae Anna Reber who 
sang charmingly two numbers, "Do You 
Know My Garden" and "At Dawning." 
She was accompanied by Irma Keiffer. 

An old favorite entertainer, Rose Dei- 
ter, now appeared to tap dance. She 
was very well received and enthusias- 
tically recalled. 

Finally Oleta Deitrick with her ac-

was furnished by Nancy Bowman. 

The group repaired to North Hall 
parlor where there was dancing to an un- 
dependable radio and then to the more 
reliable piano as Grace Naugle handles 
it. Finally most delicious refreshments 
were served in company with candle 
light, laughter, and song. And then,

was clever but a bit over done— enough 
is enough. 

Because of darkness they were taken 
into North Hall parlor and entertained 
until supper time. After every one ex- 
cept frosh girls had entered the dining 
room which was decorated according to 
Dennison, they filed in searching wildly 
about for their place-cards. An old coin- 
cidence occurred. The head and foot of 
each frosh table bore the name card of 
a freshman who is inclined to be cocky. 
As they sat down they immediately arose 
with a squeal and a rub, pulling from 
underneath them a thumb tack. 

The party ended with singing and a 
grand honk from their horns.

this size, that it took four years of plead- 
ing to secure them, and that they repre- 
sent an investment of three to four thou- 
sand dollars. 

It would be a shame if the Students 
were denied the pleasure of the use of 
these rooms. However, if there is a re- 
petition of Friday night's incident, it is 
very likely all will be done as the ad- 
ministration promises.

It took the prodigal son many years to discover that the 
things in which he was really most interested and which he most 
desired could be found on the very location he had neglected and 
left; similarly, it has recently been discovered that the most out- 
standing living source of information concerning the founding and 
growth of Lebanon Valley Collegers an exceedingly interesting 
blind old gentleman who lives right in our midst. In a recent inter- 
view held at the Annville residence of this fine specimen of a suc- 
cessful life, Mr. Henry Lenich Meyer, the old gentleman vir- 
tually "opened his heart," and told his story as vividly 

and enthusiastically as though he were 
re-living the well-spent days of his life. 
At times the host sat silent for several 
minutes, leaning heavily upon his cane, 
apparently enjoying the privilege of re- 
calling and collecting his thoughts into 
verbal expression, his shaggy head and 
short stocky frame chuckling at times 
with the recollection of pleasant memo- 

Although Mr. Meyer was not born un- 
til the year 1855, yet his story takes us 
back to the 40's when the local commu- 
nity first showed sufficient interest in 
education to prepare for its first public 
school by starting what was then known 
as a community subscription school. At 
that time the Reformed church marked 
the extreme east boundary of the town, 
and was located near Queen street, then 
the main thoroughfare through the town. 
On the southwest corner of Queen and 
White Oak streets stood the first build-

Welcomed At Tea 

There was a meeting of the German 
Club in room 18 on Tuesday evening, 
October 23. Edgar Messersmith, as 
newly-elected president, took charge. The 
minutes were read by Marjorie Smith in 
the absence of Mary Kauffman, secre- 
tary. It was decided to meet once in 
two weeks, with refreshments at the 
meetings when possible. The dues for 
the year were set at one dollar, and 
money was immediately collected to be 
used for refreshments in the following 

A program committee was appointed, 
consisting of Lowell, Spohn, and Messer- 
smith. Smith, Heilman, and Evelev were 
named for the refreshment committee. 

It was decided to give a Christmas 
play in German for the benefit of the 
German-speaking community. 

The remainder of the evening was 
spent in playing a game called Guggen- 
heim, which Miss Lietzau won. After 
enthusiastic plans were discussed for fu- 
ture meetings, the club was adjourned. 

Kalo Hall was the scene of a unique 
meeting last Friday night. An official 
title would be a surprise meeting. The 
meeting was opened in the ordinary 
fashion, but this was the only orthodox 
thing about it. After the customary for- 
malities the president began to call upon 
members at random to demonstrate their 
abilities. At first it looked as though it 
were a pre-arranged program but when 
every one began to be elected to perform, 
things looked different. 

It was parctically impossible to get a 
complete program, but the Kalos were 
successful in acquiring a rough sketch. 
Clarence Aungst led off with a dance— 
or jig— of his own invention accompa- 
nied by Harry Zerbe on the violin. 

Paul Hershey followed with some 
stories told in his famous style. The 
next to be called upon was Wilbur 
Shroyer, who" told of several interesting 
details about Harrisburg's famous ren- 
dezvous "Sbppy Joe's." 

The next one had them up a tree. 
Moser became poetic but the drawback 
or asset was that he did it in dialect. The 
Kalos are still trying to console their in- 
jured feelings at hearing a weird combi- 
nation of Jewish and Dutch. 

John Gongloff of the Chamber Hill

entrance with a short story. "Dolly"

"Scoop" Feeser, Individual Star, Scores Twice As Lebanon Valley 
Flashes Form for First Time to Overwhelm Undefeated 
Mudhens— Smith's Educated Toe Accounts for Five Points. 

After grovelling in the dust of defeat in three previous starts, 
Lebanon Valley's football eleven once again became "Flying Dutch- 
men" and showed real power to trounce the University of Dela- 
ware "Mudhens." The hard-fighting, fast-charging, and speedy 
Valleyites, led by the veteran "Scoop" Feeser, displayed a rare 
brand of offensive football to down "Skip" Stahley's undefeated 
and unscored-on team by a 24-0 count before a large home-coming 
crowd at Newark on Saturday. 

The score fails to indicate the decided advantage held by the 
"Flying Dutchmen" who lived up to their reputation for the first

The Wednesday evening prayer meet- 
ing opened with a short prelude played 
by Irma Keiffer. After singing a few 
hymns, the leader, Homer Kendall, read 
a poem setting forth the thought of dis- 
cussion for the evening— "Solitude." 
Curvin Thompson led the group in de- 
votions which coincided very well with 
the evening's topic. Rae Anna Reber 
sang a very beautiful solo. The song 
added feeling and atmosphere to the 
meeting. The group sang a few more 
hymns, and then the speaker of the meet- 
ing was announced. Calvin Reber de- 
livered the message to the eager listen- 
ers. He chose the subject "Quiet Places 
in Life" for the topic of his talk. The 
speaker emphasized and used as illustra- 
tions the lonely places in Jesus' life. The 
meeting closed with a reading by the 
chairman and the customary prayer cir- 


Officers Elected, and New Mem- 
bers to Be Chosen In 
Near Future 

A combined meeting of the Internation- 
al Relations Club and debaters was held 
on Wednesday, the 24th. Since the de- 
baters are concerned with international 
problems, it was decided that the two 
groups should consolidate. 

Only five members of the old Inter- 
national Relations Cabinet remain. The 
cabinet has elected its officers for this 
year: President, Mark Hostetter; vice- 
president, Mary March; and secretary- 
treasurer, Christine Smith. The member- 
ship of the cabinet will be increased to 

Most important of all present activities 
of the club is the planning for the con- 
vention of International Relations Clubs 
at State College on November 23 and 
24. The club has decided to send a dele- 
gation of four members to the meeting. 
One of these delegates will deliver a 
speech on the munitions problem. 

Meetings Will be held every two weeks. 
The meeting night has not been deter- 
mined as yet. For the first part of the 
year, the topic for discussion at club 
gatherings will be the international mu- 
nitions question. 

The Life Work Recruits held their 
first regular meeting of the season last 
Thursday night in North Hall parlor. 
Nineteen members including Dr. Richie, 
the faculty adviser, were present. The 
newly-elected officers assumed their re- 
spective duties as follows: Elwood 
Needy, president; Lena Cockshott, vice- 
president; Miller Schmuck, secretary; 
and Lloyd Beamesderfer, chairman of the 
deputation committee. Two offices, those 
of treasurer and pianist, are yet to be, 

The meeting opened with the singing 
of an appropriate hymn, after which one 
of the ministerial students present led in 
a brief devotional service. The group 
was then favored with a piano solo by 
Alma Cline. 

The first item of business was the pre- 
sentation of a constitution for the Life 
Work Recruits. Although this instru- 
ment had been drawn up for some time, 
it had never been formally recognized.

♦ time this season. They were on the of- 
fense most of the time and continually 
waded deep into Delaware territory. 
Feeser entered the game as acting cap- 
tain and turned in the best performance 
of his colorful career. Defensively, he 
was a tower of strength; offensively, he 
was a continual threat. He did all of the 
punting and all of the passing that turned 
out successfully. He scored two of the 
three touchdowns, his 60-yard sprint for 
the first score being the longest on record 
at L. V. C. this year. 

"Jerry" Frock's team, minus the serv- 
ices of co-Captain Rust, "Chick" Fur- 
long, and Coda Sponaugle, all out on 
account of injuries, took the field the de- 
cided underdog, seemingly doomed to a 
fourth straight defeat. 

Immediately after the kick-off, how- 
ever, it was quite evident that Lebanon 
Valley meant business. Feeser 's punts 
kept Delaware deep in their own terri- 
tory during the early part of the first 
period. After the "Hens" found that they 
could do nothing through the L. V. line, 
Thompson punted to Cafchidi on his own 
20. It was at this point that the Valley's 
first scoring drive got under way. Fee- 
ser, Sheesley, and Carchidi ripped 
through the Delaware forward wall for 
five successive first downs to place the 
ball 20 yards short of a touchdown. Car- 
chidi and Feeser ran it to the 12 in two 
plays and "Jerry" Frock sent Bill Smith, 
who failed to start because of an injury, 
into the fray. Smith dropped back to the 
17-yard line, and, with Carchidi holding 
the ball, booted a perfect field goal from 
placement. The remainder of the half 
found Lebanon Valley always on the of- 
fensive and several times deep in Dela- 
ware territory. During the first half 
Lebanon Valley registered seven first 
downs while holding Delaware to one

THURSDAY, NOV. 1, 1934 



According to Alexander Woollcott 
only one person besides Sarah Bern- 
hardt is entitled to be called a trouper. 
This is Katherine Cornell. 

In Miss Cornell's last season's tour 
she covered over 16,000 miles, and ap- 
peared in 74 cities all over the country. 
Her plays were: "Romeo and Juliet," 
"Candida," and "The Barretts of Wim- 
pole Street." 

She traveled under many great diffi- 
culties. Probably the best example of 
this is shown in the story which is told 
of her company on Christmas of 1933. 
They had a week's engagement in Seat- 
tle. The weather was so bad and the 
trains were held back so much that they 
did not reach their destinatidn until 11:15 
P. M. at which time they found the audi- 
ence still waiting. They begged the 
Thespians to play for them, and most of 
all Miss Cornell. They agreed. To keep 
the audience entertained they raised the 
curtain and allowed them to watch the 
costumes being given out, and the set- 
ting pushed in place. Finally, at five 
past one in the morning they began. 

At a quarter of four in the morning 
the final curtain fell and that eager audi- 
ence stayed to give more curtain calls 
than the troup had ever heard. And so 
she is entitled to be called a trouper 

Can anyone suggest a more ideal way 
to celebrate a football victory than to 
have a holiday on a damp, cold, blue 
Monday? After five weeks of college life 
one begins to get restless and wish for 
a day or two of vacation, a prolonged 
week-end at home, just a short interim 
from the customary weekly grind, mere- 
ly to sleep through one morning and the 
eight o'clock alarm, rising in the later 
morning hours to stretch himself lazily, 
yawn, and regard his environment with 
pleasure. One can appreciate the fullness 
of a college career when permitted some 
unexpected time to absorb its beauties, 
to catch up on lost sleep, and to have no 
classes to attend. 

It is a well-known tendency of the 
Lebanon Valley student body to agitate 
for a holiday upon the first presentation 
of a sufficient opportunity. Many of us 
were counting on this occasion for weeks 
past, planning how to spend profitably 
a free day. But this year the annual ex- 
citement and suspense proved unneces- 
sary. President Lynch, probably urged 
on by the entreaties of his offspring, de- 
clared the holiday as having been de- 
cided upon before the student paraders 
surrounded his domicile. 

A college visitor would have been 
much amazed on Monday at the lonely 
appearance of the forsaken campus- 
with only the birds and grass to keep it 
company. But we are told that this rup- 
ture is easily explained-through our L. 
V. detective agency we discover that 
many couples and otherwise were seen 
strolling along the main thoroughfare, 
studying the forest leaves, viewing the 
Quittie in its fall splendor, or gazing at 
the town points of interest. 

As a grand finale to a perfect day the 
student government associations kindly 
arranged a dance. With the floor in un- 
usually good condition, the orchestra ex- 
cellent, and the students in high spirits 
we ended our holiday with a word of 
thanks and a hope of further blessings 
to come. 

The Class of 1884 of Susquehanna 
University holds a unique distinction. 
Every member of this class is still living 
It is celebrating its 50th anniversary. 

Prof. A. J. Pfahl of Indiana State 
Teachers College, who traveled last sum 
mer in Europe with Sherwood Eddy, 
spoke in the assembly of that college 
concerning Hitler. Rev. Pfahl raised two 
vital questions concerning the German 
situation as centered around Hitler. 

The first question was: "How long 
can Hitler continue in power?" This is 
important because of his pre-election 
speeches in which he promised the mass 
es who elected him the equalization of 
wealth, which he has not granted them. 
The welfare of Germany will depend on 
his ability to provide work and bread 
for the masses. 

His second question was: "Does Hitler 
mean war or peace?" Germany has al> 
ready the largest fleet of civil planes in 
Europe. He has an extensive foreign 
policy which presents the question re- 
stated, "Can Hitler accomplish his for- 
eign policy without forcing war?" 

Thirty-nine freshmen were promised 
the presidency of the freshman class dur- 
ing the "rushing" week at the University 
of Florida. 

Harvard has five Roosevelts enrolled. 
They are F. D. Roosevelt, Jr., and John, 
sons of the president; Kermit, Cornelius, 
and Theodore III, grandsons of the presi-

subscription school was started in which 
German and some English were taught. 

For several years things moved along 
in this fashion until finally a demand for 
more advanced education came. The re- 
sult was that a school for advanced edu- 
cation was opened on the second floor 
of the blacksmith shop which was located 
where the present hardware store now 

Mr. Meyer then digressed from his 
story to tell how the town got its name. 
He disagrees with the belief that Ann- 
ville was named after the wife of the man 
who gave the original grants for settle- 
ment, although her name was Ann Mil- 
ler. Mr. Miller, he explained, was one 

of the many Palatines who were given 
land and freedom in America by Queen 
Anne, and in order to show his apprecia- 
tion for the opportunities her majesty had 
granted to his ancestors, he called the 
town Ann Will. Miller's loyalty to the 
English is evidenced in the fact that he 
gave several of the streets English names 
Queen, King, and Lancaster streets. 
Advanced education was rapidly grip- 
ping the citizens of the town, and not 
long after the academy above the black- 
smith shop had been founded such sub- 
jects as advanced mathematics, history, 
and the elements of natural philosophy 
were introduced. Mr. Meyer's father, in- 
spired with the educational movement, 
wrote computations in algebra and frac- 
tions, in which there is some remarkable 
alignment of material. The Meyer fam- 
ily lived at this time at Gravel Hill, and 
Grandfather Meyer succeeded in sending 
his eight sons to the academy at the 
blacksmith shop and at its later location. 
The school building soon became too 
small to accommodate the number of stu- 
dents attending, and finally under the 
supervision of the principal, Mr. Bals- 
baugh, the new building which is now 
South Hall, was constructed by a stock- 
holding company. The new school rap- 
idly became popular, and students came 
from far sections of the state to attend, 
but at the death of Mr. Balsbaugh, the 
popular principal, progress was checked 
temporarily. However, the people of the 
town again became interested and took 
charge of the school, bringing in princi- 
pals and instructors of note. Girls were 
allowed to attend, the idea of no ad- 
vanced education for women having 
been discarded, and before long, the lit- 
tle school was again flourishing. But 
progress was again retarded. The prin- 
cipal, a man by the name of Macbeth, 
got into a dispute with one of the girl 
students, with the result that the parents 
of the girl complained to the stockholders 
and the school was closed. The building 
was leased to various individuals who 
tried to continue the instruction, but 
none seemed to succeed. Then came the 
Civil War, and educational interests were 
temporarily laid aside. 

In the years 1864-65, the United 
Brethren church decided to have a col- 
lege founded in the east. Before this 
time, it was not considered right to have 
an educated minister, but the success of 
Otterbein College in the West plus a 
sentiment against untrained ministers, led 
the United Brethren church to take defi- 
nite action in deciding to set up a col- 
lege at a conference held in the United 
Brethren, now the Catholic church, in 
Annville. The question then arose— 
Where should the college be located? 
Harrisburg made its bid, Hummelstown 
insisted that it be built there, and Ann- 
ville also presented its claims. However, 
the decision was made in favor of Ann- 
ville when the academy building, which 
had become a hot-iron in the hands of 
the individual owners, was donated to 
the church for school purposes only. 
Liberal subscriptions were taken, and 
plans were made for the purchase of a 
tract of land and the construction of a 
main building. The original campus pur- 
chased extended one block east of Col- 
lege avenue and north to the railroad. 
However, since there were houses locat- 
ed on these premises whose rear en- 
trances would face the new main build- 
ing, parts of the field were sold, and 
College and Sheridan avenues were 
made the east and north boundaries of 
the campus. Mr. Meyer's uncle laid out 
College avenue. A gentleman by the 
name of Daniel Early, one of the prime 
movers for a college, got a charter from 
the state. That charter, Mr. Meyer as- 
serts, can not be got now by any insti- 
tution with less than a million dollar en- 
dowment. It is in reality a university 
charter and grants university privileges. 
Daniel Early was also a prime mover 
for the organization of a literary society, 
and he is generally recognized as the 
father of the Philokosmian Society. 

Here again, Mr. Meyer digressed 
slightly to tell of his grandfather's work 
as a member of a" committee chosen to 

Lucille Mayberry

wiches in the girls' dorm, and then

Members of the cabinet are: Lu-

arrange for a turnpike and to straighten 
the road between Hummelstown and 
Reading. The main road was a winding 
trail over which many teams traveled, 
and it was the duty of this committee to 
better the traveling conditions. The 
grandfather also owned an immense team 
which took products to Philadelphia, a 
week's trip, and returned laden with ex- 
change materials. 

When the first building, called "Peni- 
tentiary Hall" by the students of Mr 
Meyer's day, was constructed, Mr. Mey- 
er was then a boy of ten working in his 
father's field north of town. Seeing the 
unusual activity in the town, Henry 
asked his uncle, who was helping at the 
work of harrowing the ground, what was 
going on. His uncle responded that a 
college was being built, but the boy 
couldn't understand what that was, and 
the name completely mystified him. The 
uncle tried to explain, but to no avail. 

Mr. Meyer's father died in 1862 when 
henry was a young boy of seven years, 
leaving his son to the care of his broth- 
er, Rudolph. Rudolph's son, Simon, 
started to the new college soon after it 
began to function, entering as a student 
in the preparatory department. Henry 
often worked with his cousin, reading 
and helping him with his studies, and 
became zealous to attend the school also. 
Later the family separated, and Henry 
went out into the wide world to earn 
money for his education. In 1871 with 
limited resources, he came to Lebanon 
Valley College, to pursue his studies un- 
til the finances were exhausted. He was 
fortunate in gaining positions as super- 
vising principal in the Adamstown, Bain- 
bridge, Strasburg, and Williamstown 
schools bettering his position and wages 
with each change. School terms at that 
time were usually but six months in 
length, and during the extra months 
Henry managed to gain units toward his 
college degree. In 1892, he stopped 
teaching and came to Lebanon Valley to 
finish the course he had started twenty- 
one years earlier, at this time he was 
classed as a junior. 

claiming the members had not en 0Ugll 
ability to select their own name, but \ n 
spite of numerous harsh verbal and fi sti( . 
encounters the Kalos continued to thri Ve 
By the year 1877 they were holding re ^ 
ular, well-organized meetings, in ^hi Cri 
the members were required to take a „ 
active part. Failure to do so brought th e 
infliction of a fine. Mr. Meyer told that 
he was so frequently put on for a reci- 
tation against his will that in order t 
gain the disfavor of his audience, h e 
committed to memory the first reader, 
which he was teaching to a group f 
first grade students in a school near Ann. 
ville, and presented it in one of the meet- 
ings. Strenuous opposition was voiced 
by his audience for this non-sensical pre . 
sentation, but he had the floor and forced 
his listeners to "take it." He was not 
called to speak so frequently after that. 

Another incident in Mr. Meyer's career 
of Lebanon Valley? which the old gentle- 
mar. related quite interestingly was of a 
rather unusual baseball game in which 
he participated. Lebanon Valley had an 
exceptionally strong team much to the 
chagrin of neighboring nines, and in or- 
der to humiliate the college team, the 
principal of the Hummelstown High 
School challenged the collegians to a 
game to be played against his high 
school boys. The idea of a high school 
team challenging a college team appeared 
rather foolish to the Annville group, but 
the principal had no intention of losing. 
He sent to various towns for players of 
repute to come and play against Leba- 
non Valley, until his whole team con- 
sisted of "ringers" playing under the 
name of high school students. However, 
the local team "got wind" of the scheme, 
and began to look around for a few 
"pros" themselves. They were fortunate 
in obtaining a pitcher from Wilmington, 
Delaware, who actually claimed that he 
could curve a ball. He was brought to 
the campus to prove his ability, especial- 
ly to Professor McFadden who could not 
imagine such a feat. The man proved 
his contention, and he was hired. He as- 
tounded every batter who faced him with 
his queer delivery to such an extent that 
they became exceptionally "rattled" and 
Lebanon Valley eked out a victory, 

Mr. Meyer was graduated from Leba- 
non Valley in 1894 and immediately be- 
came the principal of the seventh ward 
schools in Jonestown, Penna. He served 
in this capacity until he received a call 
from Lebanon Valley to take over the 
science department. He taught at Leba- 
non Valley for four years, having coffl' 
plete charge of the natural science 
courses, a rather wide field for ont p r0 ' 
fessor to cover. At various times he in- 
structed Professors Butterwick, Deri* 
son, and Esbenshade in the rudiments o 
science. Professor Derickson, he claim* 
was one of his most reliable worked 
having made a collection of all differen 
species of wild violets under his supe f 

By the year 1875, Mr. Meyer had 
worked himself out of the preparatory 
section, and was a member of the col- 
lege department, alfhough not as a regu- 
larly matriculated student because he 
was taking only several hours of work. 
At that time Philo was the only literary 
society on the campus, and therefore by 
reason of this fact, was an independent, 
self-regarding organization. The mem- 
bers did not care to have preparatory or 
other students who were not a real part 
of the college to join their society, so in 
order to keep them out they raised the 
entrance fee to three dollars, then a good- 
ly sum. The result of this action was a 
move to form a new society, and a com- 
mittee was appointed to interview Presi- 
dent De Long concerning the project. 
The result was a society called the 
Philomathean Literary Society. But two 
Philos on the same campus would never 
work, so shortly after the formation of 
the new society, a committee of two pro- 
fessors, Mrs. De Long and Professor 
McFadden, was selected to find a differ- 
ent, appropriate name. They suggested 
the name Kalozetean, which was adopt- 
ed and has remained ever since. The 
Philos taunted the new organization, 


In 1900 he left Lebanon Valley ^ 
serve as principal in the Cornwall n 1 
School for a year. From there he ^ 
to Hummelstown as principal for 
years. Then, breaking away from

b y the statistics or the game. 

"Scoop" Feeser's punting and passing 
Saturday's scramble have clearly 
shown that "Smoky" Rust is not the 
only triple threat back on the Lebanon 
Valley squad. These two backs ought 
w keep the Juniata Indians constantly 
worried on Saturday. They're liable to 
io m ost anything with the ball. 

"Skip" Stahley, Delaware's head 
coach, speaking to the Lebanon Valley 
squad at dinner in a Newark hotel, in- 
formed the wearers of the Blue and 
White that they played a wonderful 
game of football. He complimented the 
team on their fine spirit, cleverly exe- 
cuted attack, and good sportsmanship. 

Lebanon Valley came out of the battle 
with the Mudhens without any serious 
injuries. Rust, Furlong, and Coda Spon- 
augle ought to be back in time for next 
Saturday's game, so, for the first time 
this year, not a single man on the squad 
will be unavailable because of injuries. 

The football series with Juniata dates 
back to 1920, when Lebanon Valley won 
two one-sided titls, 37-0 and 40-0. Six 
games have been played since then, with 
L- V. C. always victorious. In the eight 
contests fought, Lebanon Valley has 
rolled up a total of 269 points to 19 for 
Juniata. The score of last year's struggle 
was 27-7. 

In four games to date this year, the 
Indians have failed to turn in a victory. 
Saturday may be their reawakening day. 
Look out, boys, this isn't just a bunch 
of cigar store Indians. 

Penn State turned in a very creditable 
Performance last Saturday in holding 
last year's Rose Bowl champions, Co- 
lumbia, to a 14-7 score. The Nittany 

'ons fared very well, indeed, consider-

and gained a total of 170 yards from 

The Delaware aggregation came on the 
field for the second half with renewed 
vigor and registered two successive first 
downs before being forced to punt. 
Thompson kicked to Carchidi on the 
Lebanon Valley 20-yard line. After two 
running plays, Feeser tossed a beautiful 
pass to Sheesley who made it first down 
at midfield. On the next play Feeser 
dropped back in kick formation to at- 
tempt another pass. Seeing that the Del- 
aware secondary men were drawn way 
down the field, he cut back to the left 
and raced 60 yards down the sideline to 
score the initial touchdown. Broun, 
Sheesley, Smith, and other would-be pass 
receivers cut down the Delaware backs 
and Feeser crossed the goal line un- 
touched. Smith made it 10-0 with a per- 
fect placement. 

Early in the fourth period Feeser cut 
off-tackle and raced 28 yards from mid- 
field to place the ball on Delaware's 22- 
yard line. Carchidi fumbled on the next 
play and Delaware recovered on their 
own 30. After failing to gain, Thompson 
booted to Carchidi on the L. V. 20. Fee- 
ser kicked back to midfield. On the next 
play Delaware attempted a lateral pass, 
and Broun, Lebanon Valley end, rushed 
in, grabbed the oval, and raced 50 yards 
for a touchdown. Smith again added the 
extra point to make the score 17-0. 

Smith kicked off to Glover on his own 
30. Thompson on a reverse made a first 
down on his own 47-yard stripe. Shees- 
ley intercepted one of Glover's passes 
and returned to the "Hens' " 30. Shees- 
ley and Feeser made a first down on the 
20. After L. V. was penalized for off- 
sides, Carchidi hit the center of the line 
for 15 yards and a first down on the 
Delaware 10. Here Lebanon Valley 
was stopped, but Sincavage intercepted 
Thompson's pass and returned to the 
Delaware 21. Feeser tore off right tackle 
for 12 yards and a first down on the 9- 
yard line. The Delaware gridders held 
for three downs but Feeser ripped 
through tackle on fourth down and scored 
standing up. Carchidi added the extra' 
point on an off-tackle slant to bring the 
score to 24-0. 

Klipa kicked off to the Delaware 20 
and on the second play Sheesley inter- 
cepted a long forward at midfield and re- 
turned to the Delaware 20. Before an- 
other play could be run the game was 

Lebanon Valley showed powerful at- 
tack in registering their initial win. The

After each number and even after each 
movement of the Symphony, Sokoloff 
was forced to turn and acknowledge the 
spontaneous outbursts of this warm and 
responsive audience. This was quite un- 
usual as most conductors prefer, in con- 
ducting a symphony, to go from one 
movement to another without interrup 
tion. But Sokoloff says that Tschaikov- 
sky's music is made for emotion, and 
that he personally prefers the spontane 
ous and responsive audience to that of 
the more formal and cool type. 

At the end of the program, Sokoloff 
returned to the stage four times to ac 
knowledge the applause and as an en- 
core conducted the graceful and ever- 
popular "Berceuse" (Jarnefelt) with the 
obligato played by Balatin, the concert-

prepared for the Wagnerian number, as 
Miss Gillespie told the freshmen sight- 
singing and appreciation classes the en- 
tire story of "The Ring" and made them 
familiar with the various motifs. One 
can always enjoy a concert much more 
if one is familiar with story of the com- 
posers and their works. 

When the concert was over, Professor 
Rutledge met his Former friend and room- 
mate, Carlos Mullenix, the oboeist with 
this orchestra. It was their first meeting 
for quite a number of years and they had 
many interesting things to tell each 
other. Mr. Mullenix is also playing with

Student Government 
Celebrates Victory 


Music Furnished By Jack Schu- 
ler's Orchestra — Vocal 
Solos By Goodman 

To the tunes of 24-0 still ringing in 
welcome ears and the strains of Jack 
Schuler's Blue Ramblers, a happy group 
of light fantastic trippers assembled in 
the gym on Monday evening to celebrate 
the recent pigskin upheaval administered 
by the Flying Dutchmen. 

The dance, sponsored jointly by the 
Men's Senate and Women's Student 
Government Association, was well at- 
tended by a group of local big "shots", 
most notable of which was "Cock-shot" 
who is now able t(5 display her political 
prowess by word of vote. 

"Stu" Goodman carried the vocals in 
a most pleasing manner, even to the 
strains of "Happy Birthday to You" with 
ensemble accompaniment. Prof, and Mrs. 
Carmean served as host and hostess to 
the jovial group.

After some discussion and a few minor 
changes, it was officially adopted, how- 

Lloyd Beamesderfer then delivered a 
very searching report on the activities 
of the Student Christian Conference 
which convened at Lake Geneva last 
summer. As Mr. Beamesderfer himself 
attended the conference he had many in- 
teresting details to present. 

Catherine Wagner next read a letter 
sent by Helen E. Cole, who is stationed 
as a missionary in Sierra Leone, West 
Africa. Miss Cole, besides sending greet- 
ings, told of the life in that country and 
of the work in which she was engaged. 

Dr. Richie then spoke for a while, out- 
lining various projects which the Life 
Work Recruits might undertake and of- 
fering a number of helpful suggestions 
along that line. 

Then, after another hymn was sung, 
the group joined in a prayer circle which 
terminated the evening's program.

ence was honored by a learned discourse 
on world politics, radios, and what not. 

Bruce Peeling and H. A. Saylor gave 
their version of Ed Wynn which had the 
customers rolling in the aisles. This was 
a real highlight for the new freshmen 

Not to be outdone by the freshmen, 
Wilbur Leech, Paul Billett, Charles Kin- 
ney, Duey Linger, and the Beamesderfer 
boys presented a melodrama in panto- 
mine. "He Ain't Done Right by Our 
Nell" was their contribution on behalf of 
the Kalo sophomores. 

One of the society's alumni, Al Ken- 
ney, '32, who had returned for a visit, 
was next. He gave a short talk on the 
"Good Old Days." Stuart Goodman 
came in the door and was immediately 
besieged by requests for a song which 
he gratified. 

James Denton who was paying the hall 
a visit did not escape President Mentzer's 
eagle eye. Before he knew it he was out 
front telling some hilarious jokes and 
stories. Another visitor, Dutch Kinney, 
also related some interesting anecdotes. 

An alumnus of Bucknell, Charles Titus, 
contrasted Kalo with the fraternities of 
his alma mater. Ted Loose was moved 
to give a learned lecture on the potato, 
Charles Hauck told some jokes coupled 

with pantomines. Riddles presented by 
Reber perplexed the gathering. 

After recovering from these, everyone 
joined in a general round table of story 
telling. To conclude the meeting Harry 
Zerbe played several selections upon the 
violin, with Lyle Moser jigging, and the 
entire audience singing the tunes.

Now that the society rushing is all 
over and the smoke of the battle has 
cleared away, the Philos in reviewing the 
situation are rather proud of the number 
and quality of the group that has pledged 
itself. There are thirty new members 
this year, whereas there were only eleven 
a year ago. The recruits to whom the 
older Philos have already extended the 
hand of brotherhood are: Wert, Capca,

ter's Programs 

Catherine Wagner, acting as president 
of the Reader's Club, with the aid and 
advice of Dr. Wallace, planned the pro- 
gram of study for the first semester. 
Three meetings were outlined. The sec- 
ond Tuesday in November will be the 
date of the first meeting of the club for 
the new year. Henry Palatini will pre- 
side over this opening session. The sub- 
ject for discussion will be "Movies," 
particularly the many recent good shows, 
such as "The Barretts of Wimpole 
Street," "The House of Rothschild," and 
others of equal literary value. 

In the second meeting of the year the 
subject or rather subjects to be discussed 
will be history and biography under the 
leadership of "Kotty" McAdam. Theo- 
dore Loos in the third meeting will direct 
the discussion of the current literary re- 
views and the writings of leading col- 
umnists. This will conclude the program 
for the first semester.

daily treks from South Hall to the camp- 
us proper has hit upon a bit of chicanery 
which perhaps should be brought to the 
attention of the public. For unscrupulous 
ingenuity it wins all prizes: Posted near 
the walk at the southwest corner of the 
Ad building is a sign which politely re- 
quests pedestrians to refrain from walk- 
ing on the grass. This sign, although 
stationary, is revolvable, turning about 
readily when brushed against, after the 
manner of a turnstile. The particular 
co-ed referred to takes advantage of this 
fact to save herself a few steps without 
committing any ostensible infraction of 
campus regulations. Approaching the in- 
nocent sign from the rear, she brushes 
against it in passing, thereby causing it 
to face about. Her defense, of course, 
is that she has never seen the wording 
on the sign. Clever? Yes, you'll have 
to hand it to Marietta for brains. 

After careful observation the waiter 
force has come to the unanimous conclu- 
sion that Maxine Earley and "Jockey" 
Zerbe are the only two L. V. C. students 
who can sit on a dining room chair and 
swing their feet without scuffing their 

Dick Walborn, one of our promising 
young seniors, distinguished himself in 
a big way recently. When he was un- 
able to locate a certain city on the map 
of Pennsylvania he solicited the assist- 
ance of one of his colleagues in the Edu- 
cation 13 class. Together they scruti- 
nized every inch of the map but to no 
avail— the sought-for city could not be 
located. The case was beginning to look 
desperate, when suddenly the Walborn 
intellect commenced to function. "For- 
sooth," murmured Dick, "the name sound- 
eth familiar." And indeed it did— 'twas 
Cleona! That's the old fight, Dick. 

"Alwaus Reliable" 


The scene is laid in the conserve. The 
time is the other afternoon after chorus 
rehearsal, in which Master Paul Schack 
had taken a solo part in a grandiloquent 

Schack: What do you think of my 
execution, Prof? 

Prof. Rutledge: I'm in favor of it. 

The characteristic Mentzerian blush 
was very, very much in evidence a few 
days hence when Barney realized that 
he had committed a faux pas. This is 
how it happened: The gallant Mr. Ment-

Lebanon, approached a meek-looking in- 
dividual whom he took to be a clerk, 
cleared his throat a couple of times, and 
cooed, "Let me see once some of your

Music Enthusiasts 
Hear Jascha Heifetz 
At York Auditorium 


Nino Martini, Metropolitan Ten- 
or, to Sing In Harrisburg 
November 12 

Once more Lebanon Valley College 
wa s well represented at one of the most 
outstanding concerts of the season, which 
was given in York, on Monday evening, 
under the auspices of the Community 
Concert Association. 

Jascha Heifetz, who ranks as one of 
the greatest violinists, was born in Vil- 
na, Russia, February 2, 1901. He began 
violin at the age of three. When he was 
five he entered the Royal school of mu- 
sic, and graduated at the age of eight. 
Then he went to St. Petersburg and be- 
came the pupil of that very famous teach- 
er, Leopold Auer. A year later he gave 
his recital and played for an audience 
of five thousand, as soloist with the Sym- 
phony at Pavlovsk, Berlin. He was only 
thirteen years old when he made his Ber- 
lin debut and became internationally fa- 
mous. From then on his rise was rapid. 
He made his New York debut October 
17, 1917. In 1925 he had made enough 
money to donate a concert hall at Jeru- 
salem, Palestine. He received the Che- 
valier Legion Medal of Honor in 1926 
from the French president. Three years 
later, on August 20, he was married to 
Florence Vidor, the screen actress. 

It is said that the first mistake he had 
ever made while playing for an audience 
was made shortly after he was married, 
and he is not supposed to have made a 
mistake since that time. "Heifetz is re- 
garded as the equal of any violinist the 
world over, in technique, beauty of tone 
and in artistic interpretation." 

After hearing this remarkable recital 
the college is of one mind in saying that 
he is truly a great artist. 

Tuesday evening found quite a number 
of students and faculty in Reading to see 
th e Ballet Russe of Monte Carlo which 
^ a s presented by the Richard Haage 
Concert Series. The grace and ease with 
which this ballet interprets the dance is 
ffl ost astonishing.

Dr. Wallace Attends 
Authors' Guild Session 

The Authors' Guild of America, a 
branch of the Authors' League, held its 
annual meeting on October the 25th. 
There was a luncheon and business meet- 

Dr. Wallace of the college faculty at- 
tended this meeting and brings back in- 
teresting information from it. There were 
quite a few notable speakers. The fa- 
mous Sherwood Anderson addressed the 
gathering. The versatile Margaret Wid- 
demer, poet, novelist, short-story writer, 
and Arthur Guiterman, poet and critic, 
also spoke. 

In the business meeting, the depression 
in the literary circles was discussed. It 
was suggested that economic recovery 
will not aid the depression among au- 
thors, since the radio and movie are tak- 
ing the place of the magazine and jour- 
nalism, fc is interesting to note the sug- 
gestion made that every university pro- 
fessor require assistance of authors in 
writing his yearly book and pay for it. 

L. V, C. Alumnus 
Attains Distinction 


Tours Outstanding European 
Hospitals and Clinics 
With Wife 

Dr. Joseph F. Reed, a graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College in the class of 
1912, and now a resident of Harrisburg, 
as the result of the award of the Seibert 
prize for outstanding work in his profes- 
sion, and his and his wife's election as 
delegates to the F I D A C Congress 
in London, recently toured Europe, visit- 
ing clinics, meetings, and conferences. 
Dr. Reed, a specialist in obstetrics, visit- 
ed many hospitals, the most important of 
which were the Queen Charlotte hospital, 
the London Royal Free hospital, and the 
Dublin Rotunda, the largest maternity 
hospital of Great Britain. Here he wit- 
nessed unusually difficult operations 
which were performed by Dr. Davidson, 
master of the hospital. 

Dr. Reed studied the English Panel 
System, in its methods treating unem- 
ployment and social relief, and the medi- 
cal questions that pertain to them. He 
was a guest at a banquet given by the 
Lord Mayor of the Corporation of the 
City of London and was entertained by 
James L. McCann, commander of the 
American Legion Department of France. 

Although they were in Dublin on the 
day King Alexander of Yugo-Slavia and 
Louis Barthou, French Foreign Minister, 
were killed, he was in Ragusa, the only 
port of Yugo-Slavia on the day of the

Paul Blankenbiller 
To Play For Dance 
Homecoming Day 


Many Old-Timers Are Expected 
— Climax To Homecoming 
Day Program 

Paul Blankenbiller and his Royal 
Manhatters will play for the Varsity 
"L" Club Homecoming dance Saturday 
night, November 10, at the Annville 
High School gymnasium. The affair be- 
gins at 8:30 and closes sharply at 11:45. 
Dance programs are going fast. Presi- 
dent Allen Sincavage in an interview 
last night announced that a record crowd 
of old "grads" and friends will attend. 
"The most promising dance in the his- 
tory of the club and a fitting climax to 
the Homecoming Day program," were 
his final words. 

Just a word about the orchestra. It 
will make its first appearance on the 
campus Saturday night. It is composed 
of eight pieces and has played before 
many prominent clubs throughout central 
Pennsylvania. It comes to the "L" Club 
highly recommended. 

The hall will be decorated in blue and 
white. Varsity "L" club streamers will 
carry a cordial welcome to everybody. 
Special invitations have been sent to 
many of the former Varsity "L" mem- 

The ticket committee has a few more 
tickets at the popular price of one dollar 
stag or drag. Why not drag? Cullather 
will! See any club member for tickets, 
they will gladly accommodate you. 

Dr. Stella Stevenson 
At State College 

Dr. Stella Stevenson was a delegate 
for Lebanon Valley College at the bi- 
ennial meeting of the A. A. U. W. 
which was held at State College No- 
vember 25 and 26. The main topic of 
discussion was "Consumers' Interest." 
One of the leading speakers was Dr. 
Pauline Mack, who is a professor of 
chemistry at State College. She gave 
an interesting discussion on the infec- 
tion of lead poisoning in the silk in- 
dustry. She told how they experi- 
mented at State College with mice 
which they dressed in silk-lined mus- 
lin. The delegate from Washington 
told how the consumer is deceived by 
advertisements. Especially in the ad- 
vertisements of cosmetics the manu- 
facturers fail to designate the drugs 
that are used in the making. For this 
reason an aim of the convention was 
to amend the Drug Act Amendment. 

St. Joseph's Mentor 

"Heinie" Miller, former Temple coach, 
represents a new deal in football for St. 
Joseph's Hawks. He has a powerful 
fighting team that is rapidly gaining a 
wide reputation for its strong and well' 
polished attack. 

Library Suggestions 
Offered At Meeting 


Mr. Nelson, Mr. Weeks, and Mr. 
Knickerbocker Are Out- 
standing Speakers 

To say that Lebanon Valley does not 
try to keep apace with the times would be 
an extremely unjust accusation. With the 
hope of obtaining more modern sugges- 
tions on how to manage and keep a col- 
lege library running smoothly, Miss My- 
ers attended a library meeting held Fri- 
day and Saturday, October 26 and 27, 
in the Little Theatre of the Hershey 
Community House. 

The Friday afternoon session began at 
2:30 with a valuable address on "Library 
Planning" in its relation to taxation. 

Mr. H. W. Wilson opened the eve- 
ning meeting af 8:00 with a most inter- 
esting presentation of "Early Pennsyl- 
vania Magazines." It was very fasci- 
nating to note the transition that has tak- 
en place from early times until now. Mr. 
Weeks of the Atlantic Monthly then 
gave a very vivid picture of the "Mak- 
ing of a Magazine." He described in 
detail how material is obtained, how au- 
thors are chosen, how copy is arranged, 
and the precaution which must be taken 
against forgeries. 

The college and reference librarians 
had a special session on Saturday morn- 
ing at 9:00 o'clock. Mr. Knickerbocker 
of Gettysburg College spoke on "Trying 
to Get Students to Read." It was a very 
comprehensive address, according to Miss 
(Continued on Page 4, Column 4) 

Underclass Tug of War Ends in Soph Victory 

Monday was a red-letter day for the 
class of '37. It was the day of the tradi- 
tional tug of war across the "Quittie." 
The banks of the stream were lined by 
a large congregation of rooters for the 
respective teams. 

The freshmen were the first to arrive 
amid the cheers of the gathering throng. 
They looked fit and seemed ably cap- 
tained by John Gongloff. 

The plutocratic sophs came in cars 
and immediately went to the scene of the 
encounter in order to look over the land 

and form their line-up. 

Finally the teams got in battle trim, 
frosh on the west bank and sophs on the 
east. After Bruce Peeling waded across 
the stream with the rope all was ready, 
and at 4:56 the fun began. A short but 
hard-fought battle ensued with the frosh 
getting wet at 4:59. 

The team exchanged banks and agi- 
tating upper classmen almost developed 
the Battle of the Century by urging that 
each class insist upon having the dry 
end of the rope. Peace was restored when 

Presiding Officer Mentzer awarded the 
desired end to the green ones. 

For the second pull the sophomores 
used a radically changed line while the 
freshmen used practically the same team. 
The change did not prove beneficial for 
the second-year men. They were pulled 
through the turgid waters one minute af- 
ter the second engagement began. 

Here with a tie the third pull was held 
upon the dry land so that neither team 
would have an advantage of firmer banks.

Juniata Surprises 
Flying Dutchmen 
In Scoreless Draw 


Indians Outplayed Battle Game- 
ly To Stave Off Valley 

After taking Delaware into camp in 
high gear, Lebanon Valley's gridiron 
machine slipped back into reverse on Sat- 
urday and was held to a scoreless dead- 
lock by Juniata at Huntingdon. The In- 
dians, inspired by a large Homecoming 
Day crowd, came closer to scoring than 
did the Flying Dutchmen, but were nev- 
ertheless an outplayed team. 

On five distinct occasions the Blue and 
White, wlfli '"Scoop" Feeser and Ross 
Sheesley leading the way, penetrated 
deep into Juniata's territory, but each 
time their attack failed to function 
smoothly enough to register a score 
against the scrappy Indians. On one oc- 
casion a placement kick by "Bill" Smith 
on an attempted field goal was unsuc- 
cessful, climaxing a Lebanon Valley drive 
into opposing territory. Two incomplete 
passes and two intercepted passes wound 
jp the other four Valley offensive threats. 
Twice Lebanon Valley lost possession 
of the oval on Juniata's eight-yard line. 

In the matter of first downs the Fxock- 
men outscored Coach Swartz's cohorts, 
12 to 8, but the calling of wrong plays 
when scores seemed imminent prevented 
the Flying Dutchmen from crossing the 
goal line. "Scoop" Feeser led the five 
Valley advances and carried the ball for 
an average gain of six yards per play, 
one run for 25 yards and another for 18 
featuring his offensive brilliancy for the 
day. Sheesley was also a consistent 
ground-gainer and aided considerably in 
the L. V. C. offensive efforts. "Charlie" 
Rust had the misfortune to slip and fall 
with a clean field ahead of him and a 
touchdown virtually assured after he had 
intercepted a pass on his own 10-yard 
stripe. He raced 65 yards with the oval 
to reach the Indians' 25-yard line, where 
he slipped and fell. 

Juniata did some threatening on their 
own account and threw a real scare into

Valley Dean Honored 
At Annual Convention 

The dean of women returned Saturday 
night from attending the fourteenth an- 
nual convention of the Pennsylvania As- 
sociation of Deans of Women, which 
was held Friday and Saturday at the 
Penn-Harris Hotel in Harrisburg. Ac- 
cording to Mrs. Green, the most interest- 
ing speaker and probably the most promi- 
nent woman there was Juliana Haskell, 
adviser to graduate women of Columbia 
University, who spoke at the banquet 
Friday evening on "Morality." Another 
outstanding speaker was Miss Charlotte 
E. Carr, secretary of the State Depart- 
ment of Labor and Industry. 

Lebanon Valley College was recog- 
nized by the appointment of Mrs. Green 
to serve as one of the three members of 
the Publicity Committee for the associa- 
tion. The students of the college are 
proud to have their dean recognized on 
one of the outstanding committees of such 
an organization.

THURSDAY, NOV. 8, 1934 


There seems to have spread over the 
campus a sort of autumnal epidemic as 
it were, and as it is not the season for 
spring fever, heat rash, sunburn irrita- 
tion, or any of those 'other familiar dis- 
eases the solution of this grave problem 
will have to probe deeper into the stu- 
dent situation. Professors seem to be al- 
most immune to this malady, yet occa- 
sionally one sees the same flushed ap- 
pearance, the strained and tired counte- 
nance peculiar to the student body at this 
particular season. This, my dear young 
readers, might be named "examination 
epidemic," a puzzled, bewildered look on 
the face of freshmen who, caught in the 
social whirl, must extricate themselves 
hurriedly, and pin their wandering minds 
down to business for a cramming season. 

Oh, yes, there is no need to mince 
words, to attempt to hide the fact that 
cramming is and always will be the stu- 
dents' favorite indoor sport at this happy 
time. Even the calloused senior who has 
seen three cruel years of exam service 
will burn the midnight oil, look pale and 
slightly peaked around the gills, become 
unbearably irritable, and make happy 
harmony with one's roommate an impos- 
sibility for the time being. 

Now upon this solemn conclusion one 
would say the moral is: "Don't put off 
tomorrow what you can do today," for 
after all you might get an unexpected 
quiz this morning. In the dim distance is 
heard that cheerful refrain, "Why don't 
you practise what you preach?" and 
with a plea for some worthwhile concen- 
tration, I conclude my miniature sermon. 

Alumni Notes

Beyond The Campus 

The recent "Morro Castle" disaster 
gave a lot of cameramen another hurry 
call. Within a few minutes after the 
word was received six field crews were 
working at the following assignments: 

1. To hire an airplane and shoot pic- 
tures from the air. 

2. To get aboard the rescue ship, Mon- 
arch of Bermuda, interview survivors 
and buy up any amateur film in sight. 

3. To get to the pier and await the 
Andrea F. Luckenbach, which was bring- 
ing more survivors. 

4 and 5. To take shore scenes at 
strategic points on the Jersey coast. 

6. To hire a tug and get as close to 
the burning ship as possible. 

The crews brought in 5,000 feet of film 
which was run over and cut down to an 
eight-minute reel on the screen of about 
1,000 feet. 

A cameraman must be more than just 
a cameraman. He must be a craftsman, 
a pack-horse, a Nosey Parker, a Battling 

F. E. Stengle, '15, formerly teacher in 
Swatara Twp. H. S., Steelton H. S., and 
Harrisburg Central H. S., has received

Book Club Makes 
Beginning Among 
Faculty Wives 


Fifteen Books Already Are On 
Club Shelves— Three Are 

Harriet Miller, '33, has received a po- 
sition in the Science Department of the 
Collingdale High School at Collingdale, 

The dimly-lighted gymnasium was 
dressed in its gala array of Hallowe'en 
spooks, pumpkins, witches, and corn 
stalks. This lent atmosphere and gave a 
weird appearance to the place as the 
crowd arrived at the annual dance of the 
Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. on 
Friday evening, November 2. 

The students were dressed in various 
costumes. There was a circus performer, 
a ring-master, a country hick, a Menno- 
nite lady, a funny paper kid, and many 
others equally as good. 

At intermission the Y. M. C. A. and 
Y. W. C. A. served a delicious lunch of 
gingerbread, apples, and cider. Every- 
one enjoyed it — including Dr. and Mrs. 
Lynch, who were the chaperones. They, 
too, enjoyed the costumes and the fun. 

Music was furnished by Jack Schuler 
and his orchestra with vocal selections by 
Stuart Goodman. 

At eleven-thirty everyone wended his 
way home feeling that he had had a lot 
of fun and a very pleasant evening. 

Mrs. Struble has begun a Faculty Book 
Club, composed of Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. 
Wallace, Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. Reynolds, 
Mrs. Shenk, Mrs. Richie, Mrs. Stone- 
cipher, Mi;s Myers, Mrs. Silberman, 
Mrs. Saylor, Mrs. Bender, Mrs. Car- 
mean, Mrs. Ruhl, and Mrs. Struble. 

The plan is for each member to buy a 
book, which will be circulated around 
the club, two weeks given to each one. 
A good point is that no reports must be 
given, and the club never meets, since 
the purpose is that of increasing their 
reading material. Not all the books are 
chosen, but of the nine which already 
came, three are non-fiction. 

Their library now consists of the fol- 
lowing volumes: 

Wells'— Experiment in Autobiography. 

Hoover's— 42 Years in the White 

Young— So Red the Rose. 
Priestly— English Journey. 
Cohen-Portheim — The Message of 

Masefield— Taking of the Gry. 
Williams— National Music. 
Meine— Tall Tales of the Southwest. 
Caldwell— Tobacco Road. 
Galsworthy— End of the Chapter. 
Bell— Before the Dawn. 
Christiansen— Chaff Before the Wind. 
Frank— America's Hour of Decision. 
Singmaster— The Magic Mirror. 
Suckow— The Folks. 

Freshman Theme 



(Continued from Page One) 

The sophomores reverted to most of their 
original team with the freshmen still 
standing pat. During the intermission the 
fair young lassies of '38 created the 
proper rah! rah! spirit with cheers. This 
final tug lasted eight minutes, finally go- 
ing to the wiser (?) class after a nip and 
tuck battle. 

The victorious sophomores who de- 
fended their class honor were: Louis 
Straub, captain, Needy, Brosious, Reber, 
Speg, Billett, Kinney, Thompson, Zierdt, 
Holtzman, Leech, Loose, Messers'mith, 
Linger, H. Beamesderfer, L. Beamesder- 
fer, Bittinger, Lazin, Eastland, and 

The defeated but hard-fighting fresh- 
men team was captained by John Gong- 
loff with Deaven, Garzella, Aungst, Bol- 
linger, Dellinger, Zeter, Schach, Berger, 
Allen, and Shearer.

it was in spirit. 


Freshman Cabinet 
Entertained At Tea 

The "Y" cabinet entertained the 
Freshman "Y" Cabinet at a tea in 
North Hall parlor Thursday, Novem- 
ber 1. 

Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. Lynch 
poured, and the Sophomore "Y" 
Cabinet served. Miss Myers was a 
guest of the "Y". 

The group was entertained during 
the afternoon with cards and ana- 

As one travels westward from Potts- 
ville along the Lykens Valley Trail and 
comes to the top of Keffers Mountain, he 
can see the beautiful Williams Valley 
stretching below him as far west as Ly- 
kens. During the fall many persons have 
gazed in awe at the beautiful scene which 
lay before their eyes. Driving four miles 
farther along the highway the traveler 
comes to the main pockets of the Brook- 
side Colliery. 

The Brookside Colliery is in Tower 
City, my home town. It is "the" thing 
to see. There are a few factories, but to 
the vast majority of the four thousand 
varied peoples of the town, the colliery 
is all important. 

Here, and in the vicinity, the impres- 
sion of beauty one has received from the 
top of Keffers Mountain fades. Tower 
City, like any coal mining town, is far 
from beautiful. In fact it is at the oppo- 
site pole— ugly. 

Yet an intimacy with the mines— for a 
stranger— breeds respect in him for a coal 
town. Despite his probable first feeling 
of disgust, after a visit into the dreary 
heart of the coal mine, the filthy coal dust 
covering the region becomes a form of 
decoration like the dust on a martyr's 

To the miner, there is no positive— 
nor yet a negative feeling. To him a 
coal mine is a place in which he can earn 
his living, and to his accustomed eye, the 
works consist of a number of concrete, 
stereotyped objects. There is the black 
breaker in which the coal from the mines 
is crushed, graded, and sorted. Behind, 
are the slush-banks— many years accu- 
mulation of culm. The mine adit is usual- 
ly a small affair— an unimposing tunnel 
entry at which he starts his day's work. 
Through it he walks to the shaft and is 
lowered, with fellow-workers on his shift 
to the level at which he is working. As 
far as the lighting system runs, he keeps 
his own safety lamp turned off. But as 
he approaches the actual workings, he 
turns on his lamp and proceeds to his in- 
dividual manway. 

To the visitor, the mine is something 
different. Even at his approach into the 
region, he is startled by the amazing 
blackness of the country, the scarred 
mountain sides, and the piles of black 
dirt. The breaker is the first landmark 
This towering building usually dominates 
the mining field. Its roaring fascinates 
him, and he wonders what manner of 
mysterious procedure takes place inside. 

Upon his entry of the mine yard, he 
is first conducted to the office of the 
company where, awestruck, he is issued 
a complete set of mine clothes, from 
boots to safety lamp. Then a guide con- 
ducts him to the mine. 

For convenience we shall suppose him 
one of the fortunate visitors who really 
sees the mine, that is, the worked portion 
instead of the comparatively safe, de- 
pleted levels maintained to create a fa- 
vorable impression upon gullible visitors. 

His descent into the mine is then as it 
would be for a miner. The "cage" shoots 
down the shaft at the rate of more than 
a mile a minute. Then with a jarring, 
sickening suddenness, it stops. The party 
then proceeds down the gangway. Walls 
of solid, heavy-looking, cold coal frown 
upon him and he shudders involuntarily. 
Moisture drips from the weak-looking, 
wooden supports. 

Soon the end of the lighting system is 
reached, and the visitor must proceed 
with caution by the light of his own 
lamp. Shadows dance before him. The 
floor is rough, jerky. At times he must 
stoop to pass a low spot. But finally he 
reaches his destination— a man-way. This 
is in short, a narrow, ascending passage- 
way through which he must crawl to 
reach the workings beyond. It is hard 
work and he is panting when he reaches 
the "work room." 

The extraction of the coal is novel- 
dangerous. The miner, he sees, must drill 

Senior Class 

Holds Meeting 

Approval of the program commit- 
tee's choice of commencement p ro . 
grams was the chief business of the 
senior class at a meeting last Tuesday.

mittee, presented a sample which was 
accepted by the class. There was some

tions but no action will be taken un- 
til samples are submitted. 

a hole, place his dynamite, and by Use 
of a battery discharge it. Then the loos- 
ened coal is broken and thrown down a 
shoot into a gangway. Here it is loaded 
into small mine cars and taken to the 
shaft where it is hoisted to the top. From 
here the coal goes to the breaker. 

The visitor is awed. All the way back 
his thoughts heroize the miner. Suppose 
:he blast should loosen too much coal? 
Suppose the "ceiling" gave? Suppose 
a pocket of gas was released by the ex- 
plosion? How can a man stand the strain 
of working under a whole mountain? 

It is with relief that he again steps out 
of the cage at the mouth of the mine. 
Yes, the miner is a hero. But here, com- 
ing to the adit are a group of miners go- 
ing to work. Do they look strained! 
worried! frightened! No! they are joking 
and laughing— saying something about a 
beer party they had the night before.

crowd inspired the Juniata Indians enough 
to hold L. V. scoreless. So what? Well, 
if special days mean anything, Lebanon 
y a ll e y should be in for a second vic- 
torious Saturday very, very shortly at 
the expense of St. Joe. 

The Homecoming game will be the 
fifth meeting between teams representing 
Lebanon Valley and St. Joseph's, and 
the Hawks will be seeking their first vic- 
tory in the series. In 1916, L. V. C. 
won, 71-0, ni 1920, 46-0, in 1931, 18-7, 
and in 1932, 19-0, totalling 154 points to 
their opponents' 7. However, this year 
is a "new deal" year for St. Joe football, 
with the famous Heinie Miller as head 
coach and lots of materials available. 
The Philadelphia aggregation is reputed 
to be one of the most powerful outfits in 
the school's history.

The Hawks have turned in one vic- 
tory and one deadlock against four de- 
feats in six games to date this year. Holy 
Cross walloped the Hawks, 51-0, in the 
xasars opener; the University of Dela- 
ware outfit beat them, 16-0; Marty Brill's 
strong La Salle team was forced to the 
limit to down them, 7-0; and last week 
the rampaging P. M. C. Cadets defeated 
them, 25-0. Two weeks ago the Susque- 
hanna-St. Joseph's game ended in a score- 
less draw, and four weeks ago Penn's 
nemesis, the Ursinus Bears, succumbed 
to the well-organized Hawk attack, 6-4.

tough assignments for the Flying Dutch-

reorganized by Coach "Fog" Smith, 
registered their second victory on diffi- 
cult schedule by nosing out Moravian, 
14-13. Moravian had previously won 
five games in a row, but the Reading out- 
fit proved too much for the Bethlehem 
gridders. Pennsylvania Military College 
won its sixth straight victory by troun-

worry about without looking to Albright 
and P. M. C. These St. Joseph's Hawks

Campus Cuts 

Old King Winter is on the way for 
sure. The Prince of Autumn doesn't 
make a bad showing himself. Have you 
noticed the effect their advent has upon 
Kreiders? Only the fittest still survive. 
The presence of the season is brought to 
mind in another way— the faculty gun- 
ning holiday plus an exam for the unfor- 
tunates who happen to be in certain 
courses. The least they could do is to 
invite us out for a rabbit dinner, eh, 

November brings Home-coming Day, 
toe, and let's see every one in the school 
out at the game Saturday, full of pep. 
Until date we could scarcely be admon- 
ished for failing to be with the team but 
Saturday— why v.c ziustn't even pay bus 
fare to Lebanon. And since the cheer 
leaders came out of moth balls we'll have 
to give a little reward for their effort. 
How about it? Let's have a little real 
pep? - - - - Whatever you do, don't for- 
get to have your picture on the athletic 
ticket. Not that' you could be recognized 
by the one taken freshman week but it's 
a necessary feature. 

Another thing the season brings! The 
juniors are having tryouts for their an- 
nual play. We had visions of ourselves 
receiving fhe applause of the admiring 
throng in the pit, so we packed up our 
best accent and prepared to tread the 
boards when we are told there isn't a 
maid's part. 

Seriously speaking, however, the ju- 
niors are preparing a fine play again 
under Dr. Wallace's direction. So will 
you plan to attend early in December? 

The literary hounds will be interested 
in this. The Reader's Club has begun 
with a real start— a discussion of movies 
and their place with literature. If you

For the third consecutive year, our 
snappy band participated in the an- 
nual Hallowe'en parade at Lebanon 
and paraded off with a prize. The 
"classy" drills and the musical talent 
of our "live-wire" musicians earned 
this well-deserved first prize for the 
local bandmen. 

Although the drills executed were 
only the simpler ones of their reper- 
toire, yet in the limited space of the 
.'-.treets the performers showed up very 
effectively, and were well received by 
the spectators, especially the so-called 
"camp-followers" who aided the 
band's cause by preceding it on the 
sidewalks and cheering as it passed. 
The prize awarded to the best musi- 
cal organization was ten dollars in

They sat in front of me on a Fifth 
Ave. bus. While we were waiting for 
the——— to turn—— ——, I couldn't 
avoid eaves-dropping on their conver- 
sation. The man whom the woman 
addressed as "S. P." was bored with 
her chatter, answering only when ne- 
cessary, and with little more than a 
grunt. The child on his lap was like- 
wise ignored. 

"There's the dress shop I told you

As the bus jolted to start her words

next intersection:

Just an old subject but one that always 
provides story material — Denton and

This pair of young gallants were all set 
for a jaunt Saturday evening when much 
to their dismay Diana wouldn't turn over.

gone. Anyone with a clue to the guilty 
party might receive a reward. Better see

tell what he could say.

way. The official shutter-worker was 
here this week. If his threats to make us 
seem twice as beautiful as we are can be 
depended upon we won't see the proofs 
'til next year at first.

don't want a football holiday. ... the 
freshmen enjoying a day minus rules. . . . 
all the men inkling after a bid to Clio 
and likewise all the frosh girls looking 
over the stock. ... the peach basket on 
Paul Schach's head. Is the light too dazz-

and at this point the Indians launched a

With Quarterback Daher proving the 
spearhead of the attack, the Swartzmen 
drove their way deep into Lebanon Val- 
ley territory until they finally registered 
a first down on the Blue and White two- 
yard line. Here the Flying Dutchmen 
stiffened and repulsed two line thrusts 
as the half ended, preventing what looked 
like a sure Juniata score. That climaxed 
the only real scoring threat of the In-

busy in repulsing continuous L. V. of- 
fensive drives throughout the second half.

way for the faculty to dodge the prob-

pleasant surprises at the bowling form 
presented, not to mention the number of 
strikes and spares made with the accom- 
paniment of much cheering. Objection 
was too strong against publication of 
scores, or you, gentle reader, could see 
for yourself that many of our profs have 
been holding out on us. Oh, once in a

that was only being kind to the pin boys.

Given one match and one trial, there 
is a possibility of producing any one 
of these fires. An experienced fire build- 
er might create the last type. The for- 
mer two are but the direct result of care- 
less ignorance^the vicious enemy of 
time and material, which destroys the 
foundation and gives no heed to conse- 
quences. However, with attention to de- 
tail, the pre-requisite to practice, one may 
overcome the failures of fire building. 

Given one chance with the spark of 
life, is not the living flame of most indi- 
viduals comparable to one of these three 

Blanketed with leaves of envy and con- 
ceit, individuals only glimmer in the 
world, producing smoke and stench 
wherever they go. Fanned with the robe 
of self-justification (that apparel of the 
mind which acknowledges two sides to 
every question, my side and the wrong 
side) it is possible to have the flame 
of dissension burst forth. The forced 
draught being reduced, however, a glim- 
mer is again apparent, and the stifling 
smoke of a slanderous personality per- 
vades the atmosphere. 

Others, by the under-current of youth- 
ful passions, soon consume all the kind- 
ling, burning away the foundation, and 
the powers of old age fall a charred and 
smoldering ruin. True, there may be 
leaping flames and brilliant sparks, but 
the fire that is too fierce and strong soon 

diminishes itself, 
sionaliv one sees uie same uuo»mu ge , 
Building upon the andirons, experience 
and tradition of past ages, the third con- 
testant fires his latent talents with the 
same sort of flame as the previous two. 
With the practical poker of the mind, 
this third individual stirs up passions in- 
to leaping flames; but by the exercise of 
reason— the damper which regulates the 
draught— he sees to it that more mature 
and sturdy timber is ignited. Strength- 
ened in this manner, the flames are feeb- 
ler, but through the screen of self-control 
the fire radiates a warmth of feeling few 
can miss. The life fed with durable ma- 
terial finally forms luminous embers 
which permeate the environment with a 
glow of good cheer. The after-glow is 
the memory we carry in our hearts of 
having been in contact with a radiant 

Home Grown 

The English department has recently 
adopted the plan to supplant the well- 
known "Slips That Pass in the Night" 
column with a home-grown innovation 
consisting entirely of local witticisms in- 
undated from the pens of freshmen in 
their autobiographies hot off the press. 
It is impossible to realize the enormous 
value of self-expression until one has per- 
used these priceless historical records, 
ind has noted the artistic exposition, the 
incomparable spelling, and the alarming 
diffidence expressed by this verdant 
school of writers. For instance, we find 
that among the members of this group 
there is a peculiar type of goon, who in- 
sists that he has a craving for "spinish." 
Their writings also disclose the fact that 
there are frequent cases of child prodi- 
gies in our midst whose genius appears 
to have been almost insurmountable. 

We of the literary staff, upon the dis- 
covery of such individuals existent on 
our own campus, feel it our duty to grant 
recognition to our eminent yearlings and 
are therefore publishing excerpts from 

their 'Autobiographies of Early Life." 
We are sure that you of the student 
body will be anxious to learn of such 
genius, and will join us in giving it fer- 
tile ground for expansion and recogni- 
tion. The following statements, garnered 
from these masterpieces, are sterling ex-

ica, but my ancestors were from 

"Baseball is something I would rather 
play than eat - - - - While just about 
twelve years old, I was hit on the elbow 
by a fast ball and dislocated it." 

"The farther I get from civilization the 
better I like it." 

"When I was not looking and had my 
mind on something the teacher did or 
said, mother would sneak from the room 
and I would find myself in the world by 
myself. This hurt me terribly, for I was 
homesick for my mother." 

"I was christened Cecil Charles instead 

of Charles Cecil, because my father did- 
n't want people to call him "Old Char- 
ley" and me "Young Charley," so Cecil 
Charles was my name." 


"I had an innate fear of dogs. The 

appearance of a member of the canine 

family immediately inspired in me a sort 

of terror, and if the specimen ventured to 

approach, I was seized by horrible fears. 

It was then that I wished to sink through 

the pavement or turn into a bird." 

"At the age of nine we moved to the 

city and I was entered in the fifth grade. 

At this age, I was the tallest in my 

grade and I had much trouble with the 

older ones picking on me. This I did not 

take from any of them." 

"As a baby, I was born in Lebanon." 

"One summer in the country, one of 

my amusemetns was catching bees. As 
they flittered about from flower to flowpr 

in the warm sunshine, I flitted after them. 
And daintily grasping them by the wings 
I would pop them into a large match- 
box. Sometimes, I forgot the bees and 
let the box lie innocently about the 
house. Mother would shake the box or 
open it to see if there were any matches 
inside. I don't remember what happened

as I could and never came out the same

father told me if I did not suck my thumb

Dr. and Mrs. Reed toured Switzerland 
and northern Italy and went through St. 
Gotthard tunnel, the longest in the world. 
Among other cities, they enjoyed most 
Milan, Venice, and Trieste. Edinburgh 
impressed them as being the most Ameri- 
can-like city they visited. 

The first meeting of Reader's Club met 
at the home of Dr. Wallace. Henry 
Palatini acted as chairman of the meet- 
ing. The modern trend in movies was 
discussed. A number of the best movies 
were reviewed by members. Harold Phil- 
lips discussed "What Has Made the 
Modern Movie Possible?" He gave a 
resume of the history of movies. The 
movie as a piece of machinery was not 
an invention of one man. In 1870, Da- 
guerre and Hershel experimented in this 
field. The first person who made a series 
of pictures which gave the illusion of 
motion was Rauget, well-known for his 
Thesarus. In 1896, Dickenson, Edison's 
assistant, developed the same idea as 
Rauget and worked it out on a phono- 
graph. This worked well enough, but 
Edison realized strips were needed. In 
almost the same week Eastman invented 
the strips which are used in motion pic- 
tures. Edison sent Dickenson to Roches- 
ter to purchase some of these. After Edi- 
son acquired this material, he commer- 
cialized the idea. The first type of motion 
picture was the peep show in New York. 
The public was given a treat in 1906 at 
the Caster and Beels music hall in New 
York. A reel of motion pictures was 
given which proved very sensational and 
thrilling. It was acclaimed all over the 
nation. Equipment was beginning to be 
made. The movies progressed, and in 
1926 General Electric and Bell Tele- 
phone handed the invention of sound to 
this industry on a silver platter. There 
were no preliminary failures. This in- 
vention also has 

- . ,,.v 8 . t oow, —-^ it is 

felt that there is little room for improve- 
ment in the industry. 

Mary Jane Shellenberger reviewed 
"Treasure Island." She felt that if she 
could say only one thing concerning the 
picture, it would be that it was a success- 
ful adaption of the book. The charac- 
ters of the book and of the picture were 
compared. Lionel Barrymore set the tone 
of the picture. Jackie Cooper spoke his 
lines with charm. She pointed out the 
best and poorest scenes. 
' Theodore Loose discussed "Cleopa- 
tra." There was a unanimous feeling 
that the picture did not do justice to 
Shakespeare. The historical flaws were 
many but could be expected. The char- 
acters of Caesar and Antony were not 
well cast in Mr. Loose's estimation. 

Elizabeth Carl discussed "One More 
River" and "Little Women." The report 
was given well. Miss Carl was disap- 
pointed in "One More River" because of

the absence of Denny's lode affair. She 
felt that "Little Women" was as good as 
the book. "Little Women" was awarded 
the first prize by Photo Play Magazine 
as the best picture of the year. This 
caused a good deal of discussion among 
the members^ The men did not feel that 
the picture was worth the reward, but 
they must remember it is a girl's story. 

Kotty McAdam reviewed "Of Human 
Bondage" for Emma Reinbold. The pic- 
ture was not like the book. It seems that 
just one episode was taken from the nov- 
el. This is hardly justifiable to the book. 

Louise Shearer discussed "The Bar- 
retts of Wimpole Street." The reviewer 
summarized the story and later discussed 
the picture. She compared it with the 
play and concluded that Norma Shearer 
was not surpassed by Katherine Cornell 
who played the same part in the play. 
Frederick March did not seem quite as 
polished as Basil Rathbone in the play. 

Mrs. Wallace gave a review of "The 
Affairs of Cellini." The interesting thing 
in the picture is the way in which it 
holds together the scraps of a diary. 
The many love affairs of the diary are 
woven into one or two in the picture. 
The picture was carefully and well cast. 

A number of other pictures were dis- 
cussed informally. The meeting was one 
of the most interesting ones in years. 
The discussions were well participated. 
The topic for discussion next month is 
"History and Biographies."

Pleasant Week-end; 
Alumni Return 
To Alma Mater 


Football Game, Band Concert, 
And "L" Club Dance In- 
cluded On Program 

The alumni seem to have accepted 
Homecoming Day with a great deal of 
enthusiasm. There was a marked in- 
crease in the number of alumni here dur- 
ing the week-end over the number here 
last year at the first Homecoming. Many 
of them arrived Friday night and Satur- 
day morning and stayed for the entire 

At 10:00 o'clock Saturday morning the 
hockey squad had an interesting battle 
on the home field, the junior varsity, 
composed mostly of freshmen, playing the 
varsity team. The surprise of the game 
was that the junior team won by a score 
of 2-1. However, the defeat was accept- 
ed with good will, and both teams dis- 
played excellent sportsmanship. 

Immediately after dinner groups of 
students and alumni started for the foot- 
ball field. The new bleachers were en- 
tirely filled before the beginning of the 
game. A section was reserved in the 
center for the alumni, flanked on both 
sides by students. Freshmen and football 
enthusiasts sold programs and refresh- 
ments. As the band marched in, the 
cheer-leaders were leading a series of 
yells and songs. The team, supported by 
its enthusiastic rooters, made Homecom- 
ing a triumph by scoring 28 points in 
the first half against the opponents' 13 
Points in the second half. During the 
half the band drilled excellently, ending 
with the Alma Mater, and the freshmen 
Provided some diversion by their snake 
dance. All in all, it was perhaps the most 
successful home game. Philadelphia pa- 
pers reported 2000 spectators. 

At 7:30 in the chapel an audience again 
gathered to hear the band in its annual 
Homecoming program. The program as 
arranged was quite varied and interest-

L. V. Students Aided 
By FERA Projects 

The FERA project has become one of 
9reat importance on the L. V. C. camp- 
us. Practically every student here has 
een given the splendid opportunity of 
Participating in some phase of this work. 

Some of the students have been given 
clerical work, either in the office or for 
Professors. Some are busily engaged in 
^autifying the campus or in making ad- 
justments out at the field. Others are do- 
ln 9 special research work and making 
cati °nal surveys. Still others are do- 
ln 9 tutorial work for various professors, 
he Boy Scout plan is just in forma- 
°n at the present time and will be pro- 
ved later on. 

L. V. Hockeyites Bow 
To Penn Hall Team 

The girls' hockey squad of Lebanon 
Valley College journeyed to Chambers- 
burg Friday, November 9, where they 
encountered the Penn Hall hockey team. 

In the opening minutes of the game 
the ball was played up and down the 
field several times. The opponents were 
very skilled and soon succeeded in put- 
ting the ball across their goal line. This 
they did in spite of the good work of 
our defense, goalkeeper, Emma Reinbold, 
and halfback, Betty Kirkpatrick. 

This appeared to be a fuse to the Penn 
Hall group for they ran up a successful 
attack for the next four times, making the 
score Penn Hall 4, Lebanon Valley at 
the half. 

The second half started in with the 
same good luck for Penn Hall, however, 
the Valley girls raised a little ire and 
made them fight harder for their score. 
At one instance June Gingrich gave the 
ball a healthy sweep down toward L. 
V.'s goal, but it was a little too fast and 
rolled out of bounds, giving the defense 
a long penalty corner. 

Almost immediately following this, 
Penn Hall had a long penalty corner at 
the other end of the field. Following this, 
the opponents were able to organize 
again, and shoved the ball across the 
goal line. 

Two 25-yard line bullies and a long 
penalty corner were taken with no im- 
mediate results. Earnestine Jagnesak hit 
a long field shot toward our goal, but it 
was intercepted and the Penn Hall team 
ran up three more goals, making the 
final score, Penn Hall, 8; L. V., 0. 

I.R.C. Convention 

Delegates Chosen 

The first regular meeting of the Inter- 
national Relations Club was held on No- 
vember 8 at 3:30. The specific purpose 
of the meeting was to choose those best 
fitted to represent the club at State Col- 
lege on November 24 at the convention 
of International Relations Clubs. 

Important business was first transact- 
ed. It was decided that anyone express- 
ing a desire to belong to the club should 
be admitted by formal action of the club. 
After two unexcused, consecutive ab- 
sences members will automatically be 
dropped from the club. Applications for 
membership in the cabinet are still being 

The subject of international and nation- 
al control of munitions was then discussed 
by the group. After quite a discussion 
he group seemed to favor government 
control of munitions but not control of 
international shipment of arms. The dis- 
cussion served as a try-out for represen- 
tation at the conference. 

After the meeting the committee and 
Dr. Stevenson chose as delegates to State 
College these three members: Boyd Shaf- 
fer, Mark Hostetter, and Bradford Hart- 

The Devil's Disciple 9 
Shaw Play Chosen 
Junior Production 


'Ragbag of Melodrama", Com- 
bined With Satire and A 
Hilarity of Fun 

The junior class is getting ready for 
its play, to be presented on December 12. 
After much consideration on the part of 
the play committee, working with the aid 
and advice of Dr. Wallace, Shaw's "The 
Devil's Disciple," a melodrama, was de- 
cided upon. The play, although not ty- 
pical of Shaw in many respects, is chock- 
full of satire and melodrama. Quoting 
Shaw himself: "The play was stuffed 
with everything from the ragbag of melo- 
drama: reading of a will, heroic sacrifice, 
court martial, gallows, and eleventh hour 
reprieve." These melodramatic elements 
united with satire and a hilarity of fun 
form a drama of light comedy which cer- 
tainly ought to "go over" in a "big way" 
on the campus. 

The story is centered around the es- 
capades of one Richard Dudgeon, the 
black sheep of an old Puritanic family 
in America about the time of the Revo- 
lutionary War. The play opens with the 
reading of the will of the deceased head 
of the Dudgeon family, who, against the 
wishes of his wife, bequeaths everything 
to his oldest son Richard, "The Devil's 
Disciple." When the family finds out 
that "the outcast" has inherited the home,

Recognition Night 

"Y" Friendly Hour 

Impressive and inspiring are probably 
the two words that best describe the an- 
nual Recognition Service that was given 
by the Y. W. C. A. Sunday evening, 
November 11, in North Hall parlor. The 
traditional ceremony was presented by 
officers of the cabinet. 

Lena Cockshott, as president, opened 
the services with a short prayer; after 
which four officers— Louise Shearer, Lou- 
ise Gillan, Alma Cline, and Catherine 
Wagner, representing Youth, Woman- 
hood, Christian and Association, an- 
swered the challenges given to them. 

A quartet composed of Gayle Mountz, 
Grace Naugle, Ruth Buck, and Esther 
Koppenhaver, then rendered a few selec- 
tions. Each "big sister" escorted her 
"little sister" to the altar where she was 
given the Association challenge in re- 
sponse to which she received her pin. 
During the ceremony, Rae Anna Reber 
played softly on the piano. 

After all pins had been presented, each 
girl lit her candle and walked out to the 
front porch, singing "Follow the Gleam." 

St. Joe Hawks Lose 
To Dutchmen At 
L. V. Homecoming 


Blue and White Eleven Rolls Up 
Four Touchdowns In the 
First Half 

Combining speed, power, and deception 
in a dazzling display of offensive foot- 
ball, Lebanon Valley's eleven marched 
to four touchdowns in the first thirty min- 
utes of play against St. Joseph's Hawks 
and coasted through the second half to 
win, 28-13, in the annual Homecoming 
Day game, played on the L. V. C. ath- 
letic field. 

The Blue and White attack piled up a 
total of seven first downs to the Hawks' 
two in the first half, and added four more 
after intermission for a total of eleven to 
more than match the eight scored by 
"Heinie" Miller's outfit. 

Feeser, Tindall, and Carchidi shone in 
ihe backfield, getting away for long gains 
by some shifty and speedy running. Co- 
Captain "Charlie" Rust tore loose twice 
on wide end sweeps before he was forced 
out of action by an injury just before the 
end of the first quarter. ' 

The Lebanon Valley line, fighting 
throughout, opened up huge holes for the 
speedy backs and outplayed the Hawks' 
forward wall in every quarter but the 

Bill Smith kicked off for Lebanon Val- 
ley, and a St. Joe back returned the oval 
37 yards to his own 49-yard line. Two 
line plays netted a first down and the 
Hawks seemed to be going places. How- 
ever, "Danny" Bartolet recovered a St. 
Joe fumble on the next play on his own 
39 and the attack was halted. After an 
exchange of punts St. Joseph's took the 
ball on their own 20 when Rust's quick 
kick sailed over the goal line. On the 
second play Cole fumbled, with Bartolet 
recovering for L. V. C. on the St. Joe 20- 
yard line. A penalty set the Flying 
Dutchmen back five yards, but Rust 
made 10 around end, Feeser one at cen-

Metropolitan Stars 

Heard By Students 

Many students were more than fortu- 
nate to have the opportunity of hearing 
on Monday evening Nino Martini, the 
famous young tenor, as he begins his 
second season with the Metropolitan. 
Martini is an unusual "find". He is tall, 
romantic-looking, very suave in voice 
and manner, and is a natural born sing- 
er as well as a very clever actor. He 
was very generous in giving encores. 
After the Italian and French groups, he 
gave one encore each. After the Aria 
from "L'Africana" he also gave one en- 
core. Following the English group he 
gave two encores, and after the Spanish

THURSDAY, NOV. 15, 1934 


The hungry wolf has been knocking 
at the door of "La Vie Collegienne," and 
as a result you now see us reduced in 
size and in column space, but not in spirit. 

Forced to face the cruel and unkind 
facts of rising prices and an increased 
printing cost the "La Vie" staff and its 
advisers have had to make a farewell 
salute to the former larger-sized paper 
instead, and greet the student body with 
this midget publication. It is exceedingly 
difficult for us to break away from the 
customary trend of the college paper, but 
rather than give up our weekly publica- 
tion for the former sized bi-weekly one 
we have had to consent to less space. 

This movement can certainly not be 
regarded as a forward one in our step 
to journalistic progress, but rather it must 
be considered as a detour to our goal, 
just another set-back for the Lebanon 
Valley College newspaper. Perhaps this 
seems like an unjust and unkind state- 
ment of the present facts, but in view of 
last year's events when all rewards had 
to be dropped at least for the present, 
and now this, final blow of a decreased 
paper all tend toward one point'— the 
backward movement of "La Vie Col- 
legienne" to a position of perhaps future 
insignificance when it should be a grow- 
ing and expanding publication.

An American was arrested for speed- 
ing while in France. The judge fined him 
$6.60. The defendant, Moe Buchsbaum, 
told the court that he was an American 
and agreed to pay the fine only if they 
would let him put it on the French war 
debt. From all reports he didn't spare 
words convincing the court how he felt 
about war debts. 

The judge said he would accept a pho- 
tostat copy of a check for $6.60 on 
France's account to the American Trea- 
sury. Bucksbaum agreed, and the court 
released him. The United States Trea- 
sury says that they have received the 

Bartolet (admiring the performance of 
an actor) —He's great. Just see the way 
he displays affection for the leading lady. 

Boran— Yes, but you know he's been 
married to her for eighteen years. 

Bartolet— What? Really married? Gosh 
—what an actor. 

Jockie: Did you say you offered a re- 
ward for Pip? 

Mose: Yes, did you find him? 

Jockie: No, but I was ready to start

Paul S. — I hope my visits are not dis-

Betty B. (politely) —Not at all. 

Paul S.— I have sometimes thought I 
worried you. 

Betty S.— Oh no. No matter how 
gloomy I feel when you call, I am al- 
ways happy when you go.

Cully, practice teaching, found two 
boys in the cloakroom standing back to 
back, measuring respective sizes. 

Says Cully: Why are you doing that? 

Says one little boy: I just wanted to 
be sure he was as big as I am before I 
hit him. Dad told me to pick on any- 
body smaller than myself.

2nd Stud— Palatini and Ossi are swap-

Prof's Wife: Certainly, son, here's a

MaGee: At the movies. 

Prof. Crawford, entering the Pennway, 
was accosted by a waiter with a ques-

calmly removed his overcoat, at which 
the waiter repeated the question. Be-

Gridiron Spectacle 
To Be Witnessed 

Due to the brilliant, unparalleled, 
and eximious success of the Bartolet, 
Beamesderfer, and Beamesderfer Cor- 
poration Ltd., and through their most 
noble and untiring efforts a football 
game will be presented to the world. 
This ostentatious demonstration of 
gridiron tactics will be presented dur- 
ing the Ides of March in the magni- 
ficent coliseum in the world's most re- 
nowned city; Rome. 

The teams selected for this event 
contain in their lineups the greatest 
cohorts ever to be marshalled into 
football machinery. 

The teams are the All Time Foot- 
ball Team vs. the Intelligents. The 
following lineups speak for them-

ing. Emily Kindt, xylophone soloist, was 
received enthusiastically. 

As an appropriate means of concluding 
the day, students and alumni gathered if* 
the Annville High School gymnasium un' 
der the sponsorship of the "L" Club to 
dance to the music of Sam Tracy's or' 
chestra. The gym was well filled, and 
everyone seemed to have an enjoyable 



consider that four of those five defeats 
were suffered at the hands of Franklin 
and Marshall, Western Maryland, La- 
fayette, and La Salle, all clubs that have 
real good ratings this year. 

The Flying Dutchmen slid past the 
Hawks with comparative ease, not even 
being forced to open up with their high- 
powered passing attack. The Blue and 
White tried only four forwards, none of 
which were successful. St. Joe let fly no 
less than seventeen aerials, of which only 
four found their marks, none of them for 
long gains. 

Albright held Muhlenberg to a 7-0 
score, defeated Dickinson, 7-0, and nosed 
out Moravian, 14-13, to balance the sea- 
son's ledger a bit better. The defeats by 
the first-rank teams were by 31-6, 49-0, 
26-0, and 27-0 scores, respectively, in the 
order named in the previous item. 

Bill Smith, besides kicking four extra 
points and playing a bang-up defensive 
game, did a very good job of acting as 
decoy on one play. "Smitty" ran back 
before a St. Joe punt to help in forming 
a screen of interference for the L. V. C. 
safety man and was thrown for a loss by 
Bill Barry, right guard of the Hawks, 
who apparently thought he had the ball- 

The St. Joseph's captain, "Cookie" 
McCusker, was kept out of action last 
Saturday by a shoulder bone separation. 
Undoubtedly, Lebanon Valley fans were 
denied a chance to see one of the best 
wingmen in small college circles. 

None of the injuries suffered by Leba- 
non Valley men in the St. Joe game were 
of a serious nature, so the squad is ex- 
pected to show its full strength against 
Albright's Lions. 

Albright, too, will be at its full strength 
—plus that extra something that the Lions 
always seem to possess when they en- 
gage the Flying Dutchmen. Do you re- 
call last year's game? The Lions took 
plenty of lacings in their early season 
battles and L. V. C. was favored to win. 
Then what? Tho-.e scrappy Lions flashed 
all the form and power necessary to hold 
the Blue and White to a 6-6 tie. 

In the all-time records, Lebanon Val- 
ley sports eight victories against five 
losses and two ties in fifteen games. The 
series with Albright dates back to 1902, 
but has been unbroken only since 1924.

ter, and Tindall the remaining 14 yards 
for a touchdown on a perfectly-executed 
lateral pass play that completely fooled 
the St. Joe outfit. Smith added the ex- 
tra point with a perfect placement kick. 

Lebanon Valley narrowly missed touch- 
downs on two later occasions before they 
finally registered another six-pointer. 
Two r.evere penalties against St. Joe and 
a seven-yard run by Feeser placed the 
ball on the St. Joe 6-yard marker before 
a*? alert Hawk linesman pounced on an 
L. V. fumble on the four-yard line. 

Early in the second quarter nice runs 
by Tindall and Carchidi, who had re- 
pieced Rust, placed the ball in scoring 
position, but a fourth down pass over 
che goal line was knocked down by three 
defenders. St. Joe was forced to punt 
and Lebanon Valley scored its second 
touchdown before anyone could say 
"Jack Robinson." Carchidi ripped off the 
necessary 48 yards on two plays, both 
of them magnificent dashes around right 
end, to score standing up. Smith added 
the point to push the L. V. C. lead to 

"Smitty" stepped into the limelight 
again on the next kick-off when he re- 
covered a St. Joe fumble on the Hawks' 
39-yard line. On the first play from 
scrimmage the Millermen seemed to have 
Tindall cornered, but the fleet Blue and 
White halfback squirmed his way 20 
yards to the 19-yard stripe. Four plays 
later Feeser tore through right tackle 11 
yards for a touchdown, Smith again con- 
verting to make it 21-0. 

After St. Joe took the kick-off follow- 
ing the third touchdown, the Blue and 
White held and the Millermen were 
forced to punt. Tindall made a brilliant 
return of a long kick, taking the oval on 
his own 20 and being finally brought 
down on the Hawks' 45. Three plays

netted only seven yards, so a punt was 
called for on fourth down. The St. Joe 
line poured in on "Scoop" Feeser before 
he had a chance to get the kick away, 
so he tucked the leather under his arm 
and sidestepped his way to a first down 
on the 29-yard line. On the next play 
"Scoop" was again given the pigskin. 
Starting off to his right, he found the 
whole St. Joe line awaiting him, so he 
reversed his field. Dashing down the left 
sideline, Feeser eluded tackier after tack- 
ier to score standing up after the most 
spectacular, although not the longest, run 
of the game. Smith's toe refused to miss 
for the fourth time and the Flying Dutch- 
men marched off the field with a 28-0 
lead at half-time. 

St. Joe came back strong in the second 
half and scored twice, largely because of 
the running of "Buck" Fleming, a substi- 
tute halfback, and Smale and Heimenz. 
Fleming got off the longest run of the 
game on the kick-off opening the second 
half. He took the ball on his own 9-yard 
line and sprinted 76 yards to the Lebanon 
Valley 15-yard marker before he was 
stopped by Freidinger. Soon afterward, 
Smale went over for the first St. Joe 
score. Later in the period the Hawks 
recovered a Valley fumble on the L. V. 
C. 12-yard line, clicked off a first down 
on the 2, and scored on two more plays, 
Heimenz taking the ball across on a line 
buck. Heimenz converted the extra point 
to bring the score to 28-13, where it re- 
mained through the scoreless and rather 
uninteresting fourth period.

Although the story passed through 
sundry mouths before it reached us, we, 
by employing some excellent sleuthing 
tactics, have traced it to its humble source 
and proudly present it forthwith in cor- 
rect detail: Bigler and Fetter were ve- 
hemently engaged in discussing the time- 
honored question, "Does promiscuous os- 
culation spread germs?" Bigler said yes, 
but the charming Mr. Fetter maintained 
that 'twas not so in his own case. Upon 
being asked by our young Adam why 
not, he earnestly replied that when he 
kissed someone the germ: were unable to 
survive on account of the intense heat. 
Forsooth, we girls in North Hall could 
use that man some wintry morning when 
these blankety blank radiators are frozen! 

We wish somebody would bury that 
cat curiosity killed^it's becoming mal- 

The following words are ascribed to 
the Hon. John Gongloff, who sojourns 
on the first floor of ye men's dorm: "Tell 
her I'll go out with her when we're al- 
lowed to have dates^not before." Al- 
though our Johnnie has been heard of 
late uttering incoherent balderdash about 
West Hall in his fitfull dreams, the ex- 
act identity of the fair young damsel re- 
mains a profound mystery to us! 

They say that a new form of recrea- 
tion is in vogue at Southwest Hall ( men's 
dorm, to you). Several fellows with 
strong arms and weak minds go into a 
huddle and decide upon a victim. Then, 
after having lured the unsuspecting in- 
dividual into one of their several spacious 
suites they pounce upon him and gently 
divest him of toga, pinafore, and kirtle. 
Then someone with an inclination toward 
art copiously anoints the struggling vic- 
tim with ink. Nice clean indoor sports 
eh what? "Yea, verily, it gripeth me," 
says Curwin Thompson, "the stuff won't 
come off." 

Raymond H. Bomgardner, bold and 
blond, confided in us recently that he 
wouldn't mind it a bit if he did get sick. 
After some eloquent interrogation on our 
part, he admitted that 'twould be a plea- 
sure to be confined in the South Hall in- 
firmary. Why?— Because he is fond of 
------ n0i n0 (- castor oil— but of ye 

ickle bright-eyed nursie. 

It has lately been whispered in the 
less polite circles that Roger B. Saylor, 
the dazzling young frosh with the curly 
hair and the tenor voice, has placards 
bearing the name Jean McKeag hung up 
in his stateroom. What's in a name? 
Ask Roger. 

Some very, very rude boys had the 
effrontery to purloin a photograph of 
"Punchie" Koppenhaver, a "hockeyiste" 

of no mean ability, and to pass it around 
for the approval of the motley crew in 
the small dining room. "I don't care so 
much about the picture," sobbed "Pun- 
chie" upon being interviewed, "but the 
camera caught me unawares. Oh, that 
dreadful George Holtzman! He pro- 
vokes me!" 

Now that the bear season is in, we 
suggest to Shorty Stabley that she re- 
frain from wearing her fur coat in the 
outlying sections round about Annville. 
She would make a good "mark" for some 
hunter !■ — or vice versa.

ties that here we have a column full of 

Have you ever considered the respec- 
tive locations of the infirmary and the 
day girls' student rooms? Rather fortu- 
nate for little girls with a love interest in 
the patients, eh what? Because of a little 
offering to a football hero, the day stu- 
dent room has changed its theme song 
to "Love Sends a Little Gift of Roses." 

This Clionian dance seems to break up 
the sisterly spirit of our girls. No less 
than seven girls intended to ask the same 
day student fellow. Seven may be a 
lucky number but the girl who first 
popped the question seems to be in dis- 
favor with the other girls. 

Two day student boys seem very 
much interested in their activities club, 
so much that they could scarcely tear 
themselves away from a German club 
meeting the other night. However, per- 
haps the refreshments had something to 
do with that. Too bad that Hallowe'en 
and cider only come once a year!

they abandon it, leaving Dick alone with 
Essie the "irregular child" of Uncle Pe- 
ter, hanged recently by the British. 
Through the reading of the will, Richard 
meets the Rev. and Mrs. Anderson. The 
latter, by dramatic incident falls in love 
with Richard and makes attempts to save 
his life. The play ends in a scene of wild 
joy put on by the townspeople at the 
ousting of the British from their town. 

There was a splendid turn-out of ju- 
niors to try for parts and after much de- 
liberation, the cast was selected as fol- 
lows: Richard Dudgeon, Lester Krone; 
Judith Anderson, Louise Shearer; Rev. 
Anderson, Robert Spohn; Mrs. Dudgeon, 
Richard's mother, Jane Shellenberger; Es- 
sie, June Gingrich; General Burgoyne, 
Major Swindon, and the Sergeant, all 
officers of the British Army, played by 
Howard Heffner, Calvin Reber, and 
Richard Rader respectively; Cristy, Rich- 
ard's half-wit brother, Robert Sholter; 
Hawkins, the lawyer, John Muth; Uncle 
Titus, the "upright horse dealer," Samuel 
Harnish; Uncle William, the reformed 
drunkard, Paul Hershey; Chaplain, Fred 

The costuming will be in the hands of 
Louise Gillan, who was also chairman of 
the play committee. Miller Schmuck will 
have charge of building the necessary 
stage property, and Harold Phillips will 
handle the job of stage lighting and ef- 
fects, make-up, etc. 

With the work of this usually unac- 
credited group, together with the cast, 
and especially the direction and coach- 
ing of Dr. Wallace, the class of '36, in 
the annual junior class play, expects to 
present one of the best junior plays ever 
given on the campus.

Brilliant Musical 
Events This Week 


George King Raudenbush Con- 
ducts Initial Symphony Con- 
cert at Forum 

Two brilliant musical events took place 
this past week. The Harrisburg Sym- 
phony Orchestra, under the direction of 
George King Raudenbush, opened its fifth 
consecutive season at the Forum on 
Tuesday evening. The very famous 
American pianist-composer, John Powell, 
was the soloist. Powell has the tempera- 
mental intensity and the technical bri 1 - 
liancy of Liszt combined with the simple 
emotions and directness of feeling that 
recalls Foster, Nevin, and MacDowell. 
He devotes his heart and soul to the de- 
velopment of traditional American folk- 
songs and free artistic expression. He 
has been acclaimed at home and abroad 
for his brilliant technique, his fine dy- 
namic quality, and his poetic interpreta- 

The Community Concert Association 
of Lebanon opened its 1934-35 season 
Wednesday evening, with a recital by 
Wilbur Evans, baritone. This young 
American baritone has been hailed by 
press and public since 1927, when he 
won the Atwater Kent National Radio 
Audition Contest. He was born in Phila- 
delphia and began to study music at the 
age of two. He was always very popu- 
lar for his song-and-dance acts, and upon 
graduating from high school received 
many tempting offers to go into vaude- 
ville. But dancing was only a hobby. 
Music was the serious thing in his life. 
At the age of 19 he won a scholarship to 
Curtis, and since that time has studied 
with Marcella Sembrich, Emilio de Go- 
gorza, Richard Hageman, Madame Bar- 
clay, and Edward Lippe. "He has a 
beautiful voice of wide range, rare inter- 
pretative gifts, splendid musical phra- 
sing, distinct pronunciation, and a very 
Pleasing personality." 


Lipstick, toothpaste, and antiseptics 
w ere the topics under consideration 
at the chemistry club meeting Tues- 
day evening, November 18. Vernon 
Hemperly, program chairman, cited 
the high spots from the recent book, 
One Hundred Million Guinea Pige," 
after which the various club members 
lomed in a very lively discussion of 
tri e items involved.

meetings before Christmas vacation,

The Speaker Defines and Explains Poetry, Illustrating His Lec- 
ture With Many of His Own Poems. Spends Remainder 
of the Day In North Hall Parlor In Informal Discussion 

By George Hiltner 

This year it appears that Lebanon 
Valley College is offering the student 
body one of the best opportunities for 
cultural improvement in the history of 
the school By bringing to the campus 
many prominent individuals and groups 
of world-wide fame. Undoubtedly, one 
of the greatest individuals to ever fill thfc 
chapel rostrum was among us last week, 
and delivered a famous address as only 
the venerable Edwin Markham, one of 
America's greatest contemporary poets, 
could produce. This handsome, white- 
haired figure, now enjoying his eighty- 
second year, gripped his listeners with 
his extremely friendly attitude and jovi- 
ality, and impressed memories on recep- 
tive minds that the storms of time will 
never erase. 

Dr. Wallace, given the rare privilege 
of presenting the eminent poet to his 
audience, introduced Mr. Markham as 
one of the makers of modern American 
poetry, and one of the best, if not the 
best, living American poets. The vener- 
able genius received a rousing ovation 

from his listeners as he approached the 
speaker's stand. After a few seconds of 
silence he began with "I'm glad to be 
here because I'm always glad to be any- 
where." His witticisms and hilarity be- 
came an integral, vitalizing part of his 
address, and the distinguished gentle- 
man remarked, himself, that he is rarely 
in such a hilarious mood. 

"Poetry," began Mr. Markham, "is 
like a lover writing a letter to his sweet- 
heart. He always begins without know- 
ing what he intends to say, and ends 
without knowing what he has said. Simi- 
larly, no one knows precisely what po- 
etry is, or what it endeavors to teach." 
He explained that poetry comes from the 
great world of the soul beyond science 
to solve our world problems. The close 
relation existing between science and po-

The administration is issuing certifi- 
cates to those students who have been 
active in various activities. These awards 
are not given for outstanding work in 
curricular activities but rather extra-cur- 
ricular activities. Since the awarding of 
pins and charms has been abolished, 
these certificates are to take the place of 
the charms and pins. 

The certificates are medium-sized. 
They are printed in black old English 
letters. They bear the college seal and 
inform the reader that the award is a 
certificate of recognition for extra-cur- 
ricular activity. It also bears the infor- 
mation that Lebanon Valley College 
gratefully acknowledges the services 
which this student has contributed 
toward the success of the following 
campus activities, 1933-34. The activi- 
ties are listed in the left hand corner of 
the certificate. The award is signed by 
Dr. Lynch and Dr. Struble, secretary to 
the faculty. 

The awards have not been issued to 
the members of last year's class, but 
they are being prepared for them. The 
names of students active in the extra- 
curricular activities were printed on the 
commencement programs last June. Thus 
these students were recognized publicly 
for their services on the campus. 



The worthy contributors of this paper 
spent a very enjoyable evening at the 
home of Dr. Struble on Sunday evening. 
A. delicious buffet supper was prepared, 
and the staff members indulged without 
restraint. In such an inviting and com- 
fortable atmosphere one could not be re- 
strained. The charming host and hostess 
created a very comfortable and warm 
hospitality. The climax of the evening 
was the supper. A table laden with de- 
licacies in abundance was offered to the 
students. During the repast, the shrewd 
wits of the members made the evening a 
jovial one. Bits of wit and humor flew 
from one corner of the room to the other. 
The embryo journalists ate more and 
more as the puns flew from every nook 
and corner. Every conceivable bit of 
humor that any one present contained 
came to life during this evening. The 
guests were in a jovial mood and made 
every minute a barrel of fun and laugh- 

"Tonkie" entertained his parents' 
guests with his toys and innumerable 
tricks. The "builder-upper and the break- 
er-downer" of the "La Vie" staff dam-

deftness. Some of the staff members be- 
came so unconventional that they actual-

Flying Dutchmen 
Break Lion Jinx 


'Charlie" Rust Heaves Touch 
down Pass to "Bill" Smith 
In Brilliant Victory 

A second period field goal by Bailey 
Gass, giant Lion halfback, was not suffi- 
cient scoring to uphold Albright's jinx 
over Lebanon Valley, for the Flying 
Dutchmen's aerial attack registered a last 
half touchdown and Albright went down 
in defeat at the hands of the Valleyites 
for the first time since the traditional 
struggle was moved to Albright Stadium 
at Reading. 

Midway in the final period Lebanon 
Vallev took the ball on the Red and 
White 37-yard line after a poor Albright 
punt. Tindall got three yards on a re- 
verse play to the right while "Scoop" 
Feeser was slinking far to the left for a 
"shoestring" play. The Lion defenders 
spotted the L. V. halfback, so an aerial 
down the middle was tried instead. 
"Charlie" Rust faded back to the 45- 
yard stripe and let loose an accurate pass 
to "Bill" Smith, who snared the pigskin 
on the 15-yard line and sprinted the re- 
maining distance for a touchdown. 
Smith missed the try for point, his first 
miss in ten attempts, but there was no 
harm done as the final score stood 6 to 3 
in Lebanon Valley's favor. 

Albright's score came after Gass had 
recovered a Lebanon Valley fumble on 
the Blue and White 31 -yard line. The 
Lions made two first downs on line plays 
to place the oval on the 11 -yard stripe. 
Here the L. V. C. line, which did great 
work throughout, braced and refused to 
yield any more ground. On the fourth 
down Gass dropped back to the 17 and 
calmly booted a perfect placement from 
a difficult angle to put Albright in the 
lead, only to be headed by Lebanon Val- 
ley's late attack. 

"Charlie" Rust played his best game 
of the season, tearing loose on a number 
of flashy runs, more than matching Gass' 
long punts, passing accurately, and run- 
ning the team capably. In one of his

THURSDAY, NOV. 22, 1934 


The recent outburst of the student 
body, enacted with so much ardor and 
enthusiasm, undoubtedly was one of the 
most serious of its kind ever displayed 
on the campus of Lebanon Valley Col 
lege. Its most apparent effect was to re 
veal that ever-constant feeling of strife 
which exists between faculty and student 
body, but which is seldom brought into 
such prominence because in the class- 
room the gap which divides instructor 
and pupil presents such collective oppo- 
sition from the understudy. The results 
have been a bitterness between the two 
groups that could have been easily pre- 
vented had the affair been handled more 

It seems that the executive branch 
should be aware of the psychological ef- 
fect of threatening opposition to any up- 
rising of this type. In fact, it appear^ 
that any other method would have un- 
doubtedly brought better results, and the 
consequent zeal for further opposition 
came, not because the student body was 
unwilling to relinquish its fervor for the 
holiday, but rather because the adminis- 
trators deigned to resort to illogical mea- 
sures to gain dominance. 

The circumstances of the rampant 
spirit need to be considered. We defeat- 
ed Albright, our traditional rival, for the 
first time in years, and we displayed 
something which we have been lacking 
the whole year— a marvelous school spi- 
rit that was insuppressable. Does not the 
cause help to a certain degree, to deter- 
mine the effect? Were not the measures 
employed to equal the fervor of real 
spirit and school pride altogether im- 
proper? Is it not the student's privilege 
to cut classes within his limit; and, fur- 
thermore, if the administration of the 
school refuses a holiday to the students 
who are filled with enthusiasm for that 
same school, what is there to forbid the 
students from cutting classes, taking 
cuts, and declaring their own day of 

celebration ? It may be safely revealed 
that, if instead of resorting to the some- 
what headstrong method of threatening 
and declaring double cuts for the offend- 
ers, the administration would have sanc- 
tioned the day under the condition that 
single cuts would nevertheless be inflict- 
ed, there would not exist that feeling of 
animosity between the two branches of 

It was a very unsportsmanlike atti- 
tude however, to strike for a holiday 
when Dr. Lynch was not on the campus, 
but it is not difficult for us to imagine 
the same scene had he been present. We 
are willing to guarantee that had Dr. 
Lynch approached the riotous group in 
his usual quiet but kindly manner, spok- 
en several words to the students, and 
appealed to their sense of fairness the 
result would have been a far more pro- 
fitable one, instead of the threats and 
feeble actions which were taken. 

CaoipiuLS Cuts 

Well, Hi'ya, hi'ya, hi'ya. Here we 
are again, ready to dish out a little dirt. 

Did you notice— or hear, a certain 
freshman girl jumping up and down on 
the bleachers and saying, "Oh, if they'd 
only put in Jimmie." Finally Jimmie was 
put in, and then her cry was, "Why 
don't they put Johnnie in?" It's all rather 
mysterious. However, the clues are 
these: the girl lives on third floor of 
North Hall, one fellow is blond and the 
other brunette. Draw your own conclu- 

Did everybody see Russ Jenkins and 
Bill Messimer? They were here the 
other day. Russ is occupied somewhere 
in West Virginia and Bill is in Hershey. 

Then there was the very clever re- 
mark in "The Barretts of Wimpole 
Street" when Henrietta told Elizabeth 
that she (Elizabeth) was "very interest- 
ing and picturesque." Elizabeth retali- 
ated with, "Isn't that how guidebooks 
usually describe a ruin?" 

If the freshman boys hadn't realized 
their insignificance before, they certainly 
should now, especially the Kabzcteans. 
They made some show on the campus 
for a day. Most of it was pretty clever 
though, and 'most everybody enjoyed it. 

And the one about Grace Naugle's feet 
shrinking so much after she got out of 
the shower that her shoes were too big— 
now the fish I caught were this big- 
get it? 

The freshman girls, however, don't 
seem to realize how insignificant they are 
and insist on being "cocky." But by the 
time this is in print they will realize that 
they cannot be the "big shots" they were 
in high school. Remember, frosh, "a 
word to the wise is sufficient." 

Quartet And Cheers 
Amuse Chapel Group 

The chapel period of Friday, No- 
vember 16, afforded a rather unusual 
treat. After the usual announcements 
that seem necessary to make this in- 
terlude complete, a quartet composed 
of Leslie Saunders and Dale Roth, 
trombonists, and William Black and 
William Gerber, trumpeters, tendered 
several delightful selections, March 
Romaine and Alleluia! Alleluia! by 

Following this, the L. V. C. cheer 
leaders, Carolyn Roberts, Louise Sto- 
ner, Robert Cassel, and Richard Hu- 
ber, endeavored to arouse the some- 
what sleepy audience, after its long 
night of patient watch for the Al- 
bright "friends." The task at first 
seemed a trifle difficult, but gradually 
the old pep became evident. No won- 

"Now take the Lutherans — " a;*d the 
drowsy students replied, "Aw, you take 
em— I'm a U. B." 

Poor Martha! Now she'll have to have 
her hat reblocked, all because some foot- 
ball enthusiast pushed it down over her 
ears in a fit of excitement. Oh, well, 
that's how it goes— somebody loses, 
somebody wins. 

Our quiet little junior, Mary Kauff- 
man, has set the whole room agog with 
her budding romance with a certain au- 
burn-haired science student. Wilbur and 
she evidently have a preference for Har- 
risburg theatres. The library certainly is 
doing its part for Cupid. 

Which reminds us that freshmen ain't 
what they used to be. Really, it's not 
that we upper classmen are so dirty! The 
freshmen merely forget to clean up. 

We' re in the market for suggestions 
on how to open locks. The football 
squad's sweetheart has been quite busy 
With her diary which she keeps in her 
locker. And how we are pining for some 
lurid literature! 

It is a vanity to persuade the world 
one hath much learning by getting a 

Learning without thought is labor lost; 
thought without learning is perilous.

In Two Piano Recital

noyed at brilliant red fingernails. Jot

They say Lou can answer all the ques-

In reading "Romeo and Juliet", we are 
reminded that perhaps some of these in- 
fatuations on the campus (if they may 
be so called) are attributed to the fact 
that people can be "in love with being 
in love." 

Then there is the one about Dr. But- 
terwick who was saying t G his class, 

The first faculty recital of the year 
will be given by Nella Miller and Ruth 
Bender in the Engle Conservatory, De- 
cember 3. This will be the first time that 
a two-piano recital has been given on 
this campus. Neither artiste needs any 
introduction. Miss Miller is a pupil of 
the well-known Olga Samaroff, and Mrs. 
Bender received her advanced training 
from Ernest Hutcheson and Lee Patti- 

The Miller-Bender duo will include 
the Andante from Bach's Brandenburg 
Concerto, Petite Suite by Debussy, and 
some of the famous works of Caesar 
Franck and Saint Saens. We have heard 
these two faculty artistes as soloists and 
agree that they both are artistes in the 
true sense of the word, so we are most 
anxious to hear them in this two-piano 

For years Dr. Richie had been in the 
habit of calling on his Greek students in 
alphabetical order for translation Since 
his brilliant Greek scholars soon noticed 
his unique method, each prepared that 
part of the day's lesson which he knew 
he would be required to translate in class. 
One day the absence of several members 
of the class so changed the oraer of 
translation that most of the students 
were totally unprepared. At last, the in- 
structor realized the whole scheme. He 
was heartbroken. 

"Since you are not to be trusted any 
more," he announced, "I will be forced 
to fool you. From now on, in transla- 
tion, I will begin to call on you at the 
other end of the alphabet." 

Prof.— "Didn't you have a brother in 
this class last year?" 

Student— "No, sir, it was I. I'm taking 
it over again." 

Prof. ■ — "Extraordinary resemblance, 
though— extraordinary." 

Is it true that Madam Green finds the 
young men visiting North Hall like auc- 
tioneers? Well, they keep saying they're 
going, going, but they haven't gone yet. 

Stoner— "I'm hungry." 

Huber— "What?" 

Stoner— "I said I was hungry." 

Huber-' Sure, we 11 take you home. 
This car makes so much noise that I 
thought you said you were hungry." 

Bartolet— Well, life may begin at for- 
ty, but it's got to be the kind of a life 
your wife approves. 

Dining hall conversation: 
Do you like this meat? 
Shorty Engle— No, I don't like it and 
I'm glad of it. Because if I liked it, I'd 
eat it, and I hate the darned stuff. 

A slightly inebriated man was stand- 
ing on the sidewalk, swaying to and fro. 
A policeman asked him what he was do- 
ing and where he lived. 

He pointed to a house. "Right there, 
but I rang the bell and nobody an- 

"How long ago?" asked the police- 

"Oh, a couple of hours." 

"Well, why don't you ring again?" 

"Aw— what's the use? Let 'em wait." 

1st Marine— Did you hear that joke 
about a guide in Egypt who showed a 
tourist two skulls of Cleopatra— one 
when she was a little girl and the other 
when she was a grown woman?

The L. V. C. attack succeeded in com- 
pleting 5 out of 14 attempted, three for 
small gains, one for about 10 yards, and 
the fifth for 35 yards and a touchdown. 

The Flying Dutchmen tallied seven 
first downs to three for the Red and 
White footballers, all of Albright's being 
scored in the first half. The Lebanon 
Valley line held like a stone wall, and 
although every single Blue and White 
lineman performed capably, Danny Bar- 
tolet stood out above them all. He made 
a goodly portion of the tackles while he 
was in the game and was constantly an 
unwanted visitor in the Albright back 
field. His work in getting down under 
punts was outstanding. Time after time 
Danny either downed the ball or the ball 
carrier to give L. V. C. a decided ad- 
vantage in the punting department, since 
"Charlie" Rust consistently returned the 
Lions' kicks long distances. 

And so to a rest and then to P. M. C. 
to surprise the Cadets with their first 
defeat of the season— maybe. 

Penn Military College boasts the only 
team in the country both undefeated and 
unscored upon and has the best team in 
its history. 

In their first two games this year the 
Cadets held two strong elevens, Rutgers 
and Bucknell, to scoreless draws. They 
then bowled over five straight opponents, 
scoring 142 points in their streak. 

Or at least all the newspapers give 
them credit for 142 points scored. As 
ar as we're concerned, we have been 
""able to locate any error in our calcu- 
lations which total 122 points for the 
P - M. C. boys.

The German Club had two guest en- 
tertainers at its meeting on November 
21, held at Kalo Hall. Miss Deck, teach- 
er of music and German in Myerstown 
High School, gave several vocal solos, 
accompanied by Miss Zinn on the piano. 

Before the first number, Miss Deck 
gave a description of Johannes Brahms' 
style and general musical technique. The 
first number was "Von Ewiger Liebe," 
by Johannes Brahms. Eric Wolf's 
"Marchen" was very ably rendered. The 
last number was "Spinnenliedchen," a 
German folk song. All the selections 
were very enthusiastically received, both 
because of their German significance and 
their excellent rendition. 

Following that, the business meeting 
was held. The minutes were read by 
Mary Kauffman, after which the presi- 
dent read several technical questions by 
Mr. Powell concerning the planned 
Christmas play. 

While the committee was preparing 
the refreshments the remainder of the 
club sang several well-known German 

Refreshments were served after not 
too long an interval. The remainder of 
the meeting was spent rehearsing the 
Christmas play on which the entire at- 
tention of the club will be focussed for 
the next few weeks.

Two of our popular day student girls 
extended their daily dozen to hiking out 
to the water works the other day. Why 
the loud groans from you when you sat 
down, Mary and Jerry? 

A freshman recently submitted to us a 
treatise on the subject "Why I Never 
Joined a Sorority." It went as follows: 

1. I wanted to think for myself and 
not to be led around by a bunch of sis- 

2. I never went in for women's or- 
ganizations at home. 

3. My fingers have grown so much I 
couldn't get my class ring off and peo- 
ple thought I was taken. 

4. I didn't want a lot of fraternity 
boys looking in at me o' nights. 

5. I had never danced with a man in 
my life, and I didn't want to begin now. 

6. Too many men were in the habit of 
slapping me on the back and poking me 
on the stomach for the comfort of the 

7. I hated dormitories and having to 
crawl over a lot of sisters to get to bed.

"Charlie" dashed 39 yards before being 
forced out of bounds. "Scoop" Feeser 
seemed to be on the spot, for he was bat-

well smothered throughout. Neverthe- 
less, "Scoop" played his usual scrappy 
game, being especially valuable on the

ter their 6-3 lead had been gained and 
completely bottled the Albright offense. 
The Lions gained possession of the oval 
three times after L. V. C. had scored, 
and each time they were unable to gain. 
After the kick-off following the Valley 
six-pointer, three Albright line plays 
were smeared and the Lions were forced 
to kick. They took the oval on their own 
20 on Rust's return kick and gained but 
three yards on as many plays. In their 
final attempt, Albright took the ball on 
their own 1 1 and tried forward passes on 
three successive plays. The first was 
completed for a gain of about three 
yards, the second was incomplete, and 
the third was intercepted by Tindall on 
the Albright 22, the game ending soon 
after with the oval in Lebanon Valley's

The hockey team met with defeat at 
Moravian College in Bethlehem last Fri- 
day afternoon, the score being 3-0. All 
three goals were scored in the second 
half despite the splendid defense supplied 
by the Valley team. Emma Reinbold 
was outstanding in her playing as goal- 
keeper. She was responsible for several 
failures on the part of the opponents to 
score. Earnestine Jagnesak also deserves 
commendation on her good work as cen- 
ter halfback. 

The Lebanon Valley girls did succeed 
in making one goal, the ball being sent 
into the cage by Esther Koppenhaver, 
but as one of the players was offsides, 
the goal did not count. The greater part 
of the playing was done by the oppo- 
nents' forward line and the Lebanon Val- 
ley defense.

that there are many definitions of poetry 
proposed by many individuals, but that 
to his way of thinking, there are only a 
few which throw any light on the real 
meaning of poetry. Zoroaster, whose 
definition was presented first, said that 
"poetry makes known the unknown, 
makes manifest the unmanifest." Ari- 
stotle, the famous Greek philosopher, in 
his "Poetics" defines poetry as one of the 
four arts engaged in by the poet, sculp- 
tor, musician, and painter, and that the 
artist, or poet, is "the man who completes 
the incomplete designs of nature." Art, 
in the mind of Aristotle, must have a 
touch of the artist's soul to be real. Art 
is not mere imitation; it is nature plus the 

The next definition of poetry present- 
ed by Mr. Markham was that of Edgar 
Allan Poe, first great master of the short 
story, extraordinary writer of verse, and 
one of the greatest literary critics ever 
produced in America. Poe says r hat the 
"origin of poetry lies in a thirst for a 
wilder beauty than earth supplies." By 
this statement Poe revealed that he be- 
lieved man to be a son of eternity, not 
time, and that he wants something great- 
er than the earth supplies. He thinks of 
something higher and nobler than the 

Shakespeare, in his "Midsummer 
Night's Dream," includes a definition of 
poetry which Mr. Markham presented, 
telling us in his jocular manner: "I in- 
tend to show what Shakespeare meant 
so that you'll know what I know." The 
definition is included in the lines: 

"The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy 

Doth glance from heaven to earth, 
from earth to heaven; 

And as imagination bodies foith 

The forms of things unknown, the 
poet's pen 

Turns them to shapes and gives to 
airy nothing 

A local habitation and a name." 
Shakespeare attempted to show th,at art 
exists to transmit a noble emotion and 
that the poet is full of images to convey 
his thought. By "fine frenzy roll'n.' T ," he 
tells us that the poet is full of feeling, 
emotion, and excitement as he looks at 
the heavenly or spiritual side, or the 
earthly, physical side. "Imagination 
bodies forth the forms of things un- 
known." By "unknown" Shakespeare 
means things that are unknown to you 
and me, but which the poet sees clearly. 
It is the purpose of the poet to see the 
individual or the thing as God or Hea- 
ven sees it. 

Coleridge held that poetry is the illu- 
mination upon the Li :e o' science, that 
poetry reveals those things which science 
is unable to perceive or aralyze. 

Mr. Markham next endeavored to 
show the relation between poetry and 

science. To illustrate, he began first by 
saying in an intro iuctoiy manner: "You 
know, many intelligent men came from 
the west, and the brighter they were the 
sooier they came. I came from the west 
and came a long rime ago." He then told 
of an incident whxh occurred when he 
was an instructor in a small western 
school. The superintendent of the school 
district was planning to visit his class- 
room, and the result wa.; that all the stu- 
dents were terrified because those were 
the days when the superintendent was 
one to be dreaded. To console their emi- 
nent visitor, they decided to hang the 
American flag on the wall. Finally, the 
superintendent entered as only a superin- 
tendent could, sat down as only a super- 
intendent could, and later, when asked 
to speak, rose and addressed the class 
as only a superintendent coud. Pointing 
to the fiag with his bony finger (which 
action Mr. Markham re-enacted to the 
uproarious delight of his audience) the 
superintendent demanded to know what 
the flag was for. No one answered for 
several seconds, but finally one of the 
girls, who still combed her hair over her 
ears as, Mr. Markham explained, "they 
used to do in the old 'era'," rose, em- 
ployed the dramatic pause (which he 
has now adopted to useful advantage) 
for nine seconds and said, "That flag is 
to cover a spot on the wall!" 

The poet starts where the scientist 
stops. The poet comes from the great 
world beyond to build up the hope of 
humanity and to give courage and 
strength to the race. When the poet 
looks at a flag, as the young girl did, he 
sees the fifes and drums, he sees Wash- 
ington crossing the Delaware, he sees 
the awfulness of war. In other words, 
he is capable of perceiving the spiritual 
significance of the flag and its relation 
to the souls of men, to their aspirations, 
hopes, and dreams. 

The remainder of Mr. Markham's lec- 
ture consisted of poems which he com- 
posed, the interesting feature of this part 
being that he explained the circumstances 
under which they were written. From 
the edition "Lincoln and other Poems," 
he read "Child of My Heart," an inter- 
esting piece of work dedicated to his

son Vergil, who at the time of writing 
was an active, ambitious, "omnipresent ^ 
lad of four years. "Vergil," Mr. Mark- 
ham remarked, somewhat comically, "is 
now using his gigantic intellect writing 
mystery stories." The next poem, 
"Three Green Eggs," was written at the 
request of young Vergil, about a bird's 
nest which swung from the bough of a 
tree outside of the boy's bedroom win- 
dow. Another poem, "Poet Lore," in 
which he tries to impart some knowledge 
about poetry, tells us that poetry, when 
written by a great poet, will last forever, 
and is always true, divine, and undying. 

From the edition, "Shoes of Time," 
the eminent poet read one of his more 
famous religious works, "How the Great 
Guest Came." In this poem he tries to 
explain the parable of the sheep and the 
goats, by showing God as one who iden- 
tifies himself with humanity and is omni- 
present. "Looking Ahead," the story of 
a young fellow who does not intend to 
look into the past, but into the present 
and future for the best in life, was read 
next. Following this, Mr. Markham 
read "The New Trinity," a poem in 
which he explains the new way of think- 
ing of three things necessary for life; 
namely, bread, beauty, and brotherhood. 
In "Our Master Christ," Mr. Markham 
shows that men must live to contribute 
to the people around him the spiritual, 
intellectual, and physical riches he pos- 
sesses, and must not live for himself or 
for his own fortune. The next poem, a 
sonnet called "Power," Mr. Markham 
explained, won first prize in a contest 
held in 1930 by a leading magazine. In 
it the author tries to show that the whole 
world is a manifestation of power. Mr. 
Markham's final poem was his univer- 
sally famous work, "The Man of the 
People," a masterpiece depicting the life 
and growth of Abraham Lincoln.

Kalo and Delphian 
Hold Joint Session; 
First of the Season 


Ossi and Mentzer Receive, and 
The Carmeans Chaperone 
The Party 

Kalo and Delphian held a joint ses 
sion in Kalo hall on November 23. Bar- 
ney Mentzer and Marietta Ossi received 
the guests. Professor and Mrs. Carmean 
were chaperones. 

"Ted" Loose opened the program with 
the reading of the scriptures and Greta 
Heiland offered a prayer. Barney Ment- 
zer acted as toastmaster or cheerleader 
and told some stories between the acts 
that were really good. Velma Gingrich 
sang "Lost in a Fog," and Cordelia 
Shaeffer accompanied her on the piano. 
With a jangling of bells, upsetting of 
chairs and baby carriages, and knocking 
over anything that impeded his progress 
Ed Wynn, rred Saylor, underneath eve- 
rything, came running in with his part- 
ner in crime, Prince Peeling. They put 
out an enormous blaze, well, if you must 
be explicit, a lighted match. Satisfied? 
They also told some stories that were 
so very, very subtle. 

A. D. Anderson brought the party 
back to normal by playing some very 
beautiful piano variations, then Greta 
Heiland displayed her best Red Lion ac- 
cent and told the convention about "Soc- 
kery Kadahcuts Cat," which was not 
really a cat of the felis domesticus type 
but belonging to the Mephitis family 
(skunk or sachet kitten, to you). "Hal" 
Keiter slid and skidded over the scales 
with his trombone and really did won- 
ders with the old slide tooter.

The appearance of the girls' band 
in chapel November 23 was indeed a 
great surprise. Under Professor Rut- 
ledge's baton this band has made a 
rapid progress. The artistic shadings, 
the fine interpretations, and the per- 
fect balance of instruments were a 
surprise to all of the students. The 
band was organized last semester. Its 
first public appearance was during 
Mothers' Week-end. Faithful prac- 
tice, plus a love of music, and a fine 
conductor has been responsible for 
this band's rapid rise. The future 
looks very bright, and it is certain 
that L. V. C.'s girls' band will soon 
be running a neck and neck popularity 
race with the boys' band. 

Clionians Celebrate 
64th Anniversary 


Music Furnished By Harrison- 
ians — Kotty McAdam An- 
niversary President 

The Clionian Literary Society held its 
sixty-fourth anniversary on Saturday, 
November 24. As has been the custom 
for several years the event was cele- 
brated with a formal dance. This year 
the dance was held in the beautiful ball- 
room of the Hotel Brunswick in Lan- 

The splendid musicians, the Harrison- 
ians, a twenty-piece orchestra under the 
direction of Mr. A. F. Goodall, provided 
ample entertainment. The Harrisonians 
are well-known about Harrisburg, and 
their fame is rapidly spreading, having 
been called to play recently on the camp- 
us of State College, Dickinson, and Mans- 
field and having been on vaudeville cir- 
cuit and "on many radio hours. With the 
orchestra are two crooners, Miss Betty 
Burns and Mr. Gordon Bailey, who add- 
ed much to the novel arrangements. None 
of the dancers could forget the haunting 
"Moonglow" which is their theme song. 
Outstanding pieces of the evening were 
"Earthquake," "Jassocracy," and "Par- 
don My Southern Accent."

I.R.Club Convention Meets at State 

The third annual Middle Atlantic Con-

Penn Military Wins 
Turkey Day Battle 
Before Large Crowd 


Lebanon Valley Loses But Ruins 
Perfect P. M. C. Defensive 

Pennsylvania Military College's 1934 
eleven barely managed to uphold its un- 
defeated record against a gallant band 
of fighting Blue and White warriors in 
the Thanksgiving Day battle waged on 
a muddy gridiron at the Chester insti- 
tution's stadium. 

The final score was 12 to 7, and Leba- 
non Valley's Flying Dutchmen gave a 
very good account of themselves, in- 
deed, for they blemished the previously 
perfect defensive record which the Cadets 
had built up in eight games, including 
struggles with the powerful Bucknell and 
Rutgers elevens. 

It remained for Ross Sheesley, flashy 
Blue and White broken-field runner, to 
succeed where other backs had failed. 
The Blue and White offense had been 
completely checked for 53 minutes of 
play before Sheesley intercepted one of 
"Reds" Pollock's aerial heaves on his 
own goal line and dashed the full length 
of the field for a touchdown. Ross snared 
the pass, intended for "Bud" Pollock, 
cut toward his right, and managed to 
slip away to the P. M. C. 30, where the 
Cadets seemed to have him stopped. 
Blue and White blockers came up out 
of nowhere to take out the dangerous P. 
M. C. tacklers and Sheesley was away 
again, toeing his way down the right 
sideline. "Reds" "Pollock was the only 
Cadet who gave chase, and just as he 
seemed to be closing in on the speeding 
back, he was erased from the play on a 
beautiful block by "Scoop" Feeser, so 
that Sheesley raced the last 35 yards of 
his 100-yard jaunt unmolested. It was a 
beautiful run, with nifty blocking aiding

ing faculty member of Fairmont State 
Teachers' College. Quoting from this 
clipping one reads: 

"The thought we have had all week 
is how proud Dr. Boughter would have 
been of Rush Holt, for it was he under 
whom the young United States Senator 
studied debating, political science, and 
oratory at Salem College. Congressman 
Jennings Randolph also got his college 
training in the same lines under the bril- 
liant direction of Dr. Boughter. He nev-

for their achievements, but we knew Dr. 
Boughter was proud of Jennings, and

THURSDAY, DEC. 6, 1934 


In the light of what was so capably 
and forcefully expressed by President 
Lynch in his chapel address recently, 
relative to the unrestrained display of 
the student body, it appears that the 
whole affair was one whose occurrence 
students and faculty alike regret. Re- 
gardless of whether or not either group 
is sorry for whatever measures it pur- 
sued, this fact is nevertheless clear: the 
whole affair would not have taken place 
with results that were almost disastrous 
had more thought been given to what 
was being done and to what the outcome 
might be. Students and faculty are sure- 
ly desirous that any hard feelings which 
may have arisen as a result of action 
from either side will be forgotten, and 
that the grieved ones will remember that 
it is only through mutual harmony be- 
tween both groups that a better Lebanon 
Valley will evolve— particularly, the 
Lebanon Valley known beyond the 
campus. Action taken during a mob 
spirit oftentimes results in grievances 
that under ordinary circumstances would 
never exist. 

It seems through misinterpretation, or 
possibly poor expression in the recent 
editorial, that the impression arose that 
the student body as a whole is in contin- 
ual strife with the faculty as a whole, 
and that this feeling was brought into 
prominence during the revolt. This is 
apparently untrue, for members of both 
groups are unable to deny that friends— 
reliable friends — are to be had in either 

Might it not be well to forget the whole 
affair, remembering that the action taken 
by the student body, the faculty, and the 
editorial staff of the La Vie took place 
during the height of the fervor? As stu- 
dents, must we not admit that the ideal 
of collective opposition is subversive of 
good government and almost impossible 
chiefly because 100-per cent voluntary 
cooperation cannot be obtained, and 
therefore certain students are forced to 

follow along unwillingly, fearing results? 
Must not faculty members admit that 
"soft words turneth away wrath" par- 
ticularly when harmony is essential? 
And as editorial staff, must we not re- 
member that our paper is not only of in- 
terest to campus residents, but that it 
also colors the attitude of the college of 
other colleges, alumni, friends, and pros- 
pective students? 

BEYOND*^ campus 

Have you heard the latest in books? 
No, it's not just a new book; it's a new 
type of book. Entirely new books have 
been invented, especially for the blind. 
The "talking book" is here at last. Full- 
length books are now being recorded on 
discs and made audible by a portable 
machine like the ordinary phonograph. 
Thus the blind can hear a book read 
aloud. A talking book can be read in 
less than nine hours and is contained on 
fourteen discs. 

The first books, now ready, include 
the Four Gospels and Psalms, a series 
of patriotic documents, a collection of 
famous poems, three of Shakespeare's 
plays and five modern novels. 

George M. Cohan, famous contempo- 
rary actor, made this statement to a uni- 
versity paper reporter, "The young col- 
lege man or woman who is ambitious 
for a stage career can hope for no better 
means of getting a good start than tak- 
ing part in college theatricals." 

After exhaustive research, the Univer- 
sity of California department of physical 

education has succeeded at last in physi- 
cally classifying that great American 
enigma, the college man. 

The statistics, based upon tests of 
10,000 students, reveal that he is 68 3 / 8 
inches tall and weighs 142 pounds. The 
college man also can run a 100 yards in 
12 3/5 seconds, can jump 15 1 A feet, swim 
50 yards in 27 seconds, rescue a drown- 
ing person, and swim about 19 yards 
with him. He can execute a rather shaky 
swan dive, and if aroused, will exhibit 
some willingness to give and take in de- 
fense, having a limited idea of the manly 

American educators have been aston- 
ished to learn the results of intelligence 
tests given to Eskimo children. In case 
of three standard tests, the grades of the 
Eskimo children exceed by far the ave- 
rage American child's grades. This race 
seems to have a very superior intelli- 
gence, but of course more proof is needed. 

President Robinson of City College, 
New York, gives advice that every stu- 
dent should have a hobby and change it 
every year. He himsel f has tried paint- 
ing, etching, and sculpture. He says that 
"you can do anything you really want 
to do if you will make an effort adequate 
to the task." 


On Saturday, Dec. 2, Dr. Shenk at- 
tended the annual reunion of the Leba- 
non Valley College Alumni Association 
of New England. The meeting which 
was well attended was held at Hotel 
Bond in Hartford, Conn., with Dr. Shenk 
as the principal speaker. An election of 
officers resulted in the presidency being 
held by William O. Ellis of Concord, 
Mass., and the secretaryship by Miss 
Mildred Christiansen of Randolph, 

Hannah C. Fisburn, a graduate in the 
Conservatory in 1924, has been engaged 
in a musical career ever since gradua- 
tion. She has been engaged at the Roxy 
Theater, New York, and as a member 
of the Embassy Trio, which has been 
working for Phil Spitalny's band, and 
which now is engaged with Guy Lom- 
bardo and his orchestra under the name 
of the Mayfair Trio. The orchestra and

when Rush Holt was causing a stir in 
the legislature, many is the time we've 
seen him pace the floor with his hands 
in his pockets and say, "that boy will go 
far." We wished on Wednesday morn- 
ing that he might have known just how 
far he has gone already. It is most un- 
usual that one small college should have 
two of its young "sons in the high places 
of the nation's government at the same 
time, but not unusual that one small 
man should have been an inspiration for 
both of them. For that man had a big 
mind, and a way with young men which 
left everlasting imprints."

Lebanon Valley closed its 1934 foot- 
ball season in a blaze of glory by scoring 
against the P. M. C. Cadets and coming 
mighty close to nosing them out with a 
last period rush. 

In retrospect, this year's gridiron sea- 
son looks mighty fine, with great per- 
lormances against the teams of two in- 
stitutions which boast their best records 
in many years opening and closing foot- 
ball activity. 

The 13-0 score at State College and 
the 12-7 score at Chester will go down 
in Lebanon Valley annals as great show- 
ings against superior elevens, and rightly 

The defeats by Muhlenberg and Drex- 
el and the scoreless tie with Juniata 
were the only other games in which 
Lebanon Valley did not come out on top. 

The one-sided victories over Delaware 
and St. Joseph's showed real power, and 
that 6-3 victory over Albright after so 
many years of the Lion jinx would have 
been enough to make almost any season 
a success. 

So with a record of three victories and 
one tie to balance four defeats, Lebanon 
Valley can justly feel proud of the 1934 
football team, and the new coaches are 
to be commended on the way in which 
they have adjusted themselves to their 
new situation. 

Seven men played their last football 
game for Lebanon Valley on the gridiron 
at Chester on Turkey Day. Center Sin- 
cavage, tackles, Ricker and Baugher, Co- 
Captains Smith, end, and Rust, quarter- 
back, halfback Feeser and fullback Fur- 
long have carried the Blue and White 
to football glory for the last time. 

The band ably supported the football 
team in making it a Lebanon Valley field 
day at Chester. They were granted the 
full fifteen minutes of half-time intermis- 
sion for parading and took complete hold 
°f the situation. They drilled perfectly 
m formation after formation and were

Valley Hockeyites 
Beat Susquehanna 


Weirick and Gingrich Save the 
Day With Last-Minute 

For the first time in the brief history of 
the Lebanon Valley hockey team, the 
team scored a victory by beating Sus- 
quehanna University 3-1. The Valley 
team outplayed the Susquehanna team 
the entire game. Lebanon Valley re- 
ceived the tally almost every time, but 
the majority of the playing was on Sus- 
quehanna's side of the field. However, 
in spite of the good playing on the part 
of the Valley defensive players, Susque- 
hanna was able to gain one goal. In- 
stead of discouraging the Lebanon hoc- 
keyites it made them hold the line until 
the end of the first half. 

At the beginning of the second half it 
was easily seen that the Valley team was 
well organized, for before five minutes 
of the half had passed Iva Claire Wei- 
rick took the ball up the field for a goal. 
Then two more goals were made by 
Velma Gingrich. The playing of the 
Lebanon forward line was outstanding. 
At last , Coach Kenyon was able to find 
a forward line which clicked and was 
able to take the ball up the field and put 
it in their own goal cage. The playing 
of the defense was also very good. It 
was a good, fast game in spite of the 
rough playing. Line-up: 

R.W., Kohler; R. T., Lynch; C.F., V. 
Gingrich; L.T. Weirick; L.W., Koppen- 
haver; R.H.B., March; C.H.B., Jagnesak; 
L.H.B., M. Smith; R.F.B., Hall (Capt); 
L.F.B., Orth; G.K., Kirkpatrick.

there was no extra point scored after 
either touchdown. 

The Lebanon Valley forward wall was 
responsible for the performance of an- 
other great defensive feat during the 
third period. The' Cadets gained a first 
down on the L. V. C. six-inch line, yet 
were unable to score. The first play, in- 
tended to be a sweep around end, was 
smeared for a five-yard loss, and three 
line plunges found the Cadets moved 
back another yard to the six-yard line. 
A great feat, indeed, attesting to the 
strength of the Lebanon Valley forward

"Bill" Smith nonchalantly added the 
extra point to put Lebanon Valley with- 
in one touchdown of victory. Soon after- 
ward, this touchdown loomed as some- 
thing of a possibility when the Flying 
Dutchmen took the oval on the L. V. C. 
30-yard line and began to move. Three 
first downs, featuring Feeser's driving 
smashes at the opposing line, carried the 
oval to the Penn Military 30. By this 
time the P. M. C. secondary defenders 
were pretty well drawn in to cope with 
the L. V. C. ground attack, so the Dutch- 
men took to the air, only to have an 
alert opponent intercept a pass and put 
an end to the Blue and White hopes of 

The Lebanon Valley line played a 
great game throughout, and the two Ca- 
det scores were made on pass plays. The 
first came with less than three minutes 
of the first half remaining to be played 
when Malinski scored on a lateral pass 
play that enabled the P. M. C. back to 
break loose and score after a 23-yard 
run. The second score was made in the 
third period on a magnificent forward 
pass which r 'Reds" Pollock heaved 50 
yards to his brother "Bud", who was 
standing in the clear on the 3-yard line 
and crossed the goal line untouched. At-

The remaining part of the day was 
taken up by a reception late in the after- 
neon and the first set of round-table ses- 
sions at eight o'clock in the evening. The 
theme which occupied the thinking of 
the entire conference was, "Recent 
Trends in Nationalism." Various phases 
of this subject were discussed. 

In the second day of the conference a 
business session was held at 10:00 A. M. 
in which a short report of the status and 
activities of each was submitted. Many 
helpful ideas concerning programs and 
publicity were exchanged there. At 
luncheon Dr. Wilson Godshall from 
Dickinson Junior College, Williamsport, 
spoke on "Chinese Nationalism." 

The round tables again convened to 
resume the discussions in the afternoon. 
Mr. Shaffer of the home club delivered 
one of the addresses at round table No. 3 
at this time. Notes were taken by the 
L. V. delegates at each session for a re- 
port to the chief at L. V. C. After an 
enlightening, enthusiastic, and friendly 
though at times spirited conference of 
one and one-half days, the convention 
ended in a most fitting manner at dinner 
in Nittany Lion Inn at 6:30 P. M., when 
Dr. Otto Nathan, formerly a high offi- 
cial in the German government and now 
a professor at Princeton University, 
spoke on the subject "Problems of World 
Recovery." According to him three 
things must be done— the currency must 
be put on a safe basis, international trade 
must be reorganized and resumed, and 
international planning must in some way 
be undertaken and made effective.

—a one-man wrestling exhibition. The 
party of the first part was the doughty 
chaplain of the society, and the party of 
the other part was an imaginary oppo-

braw laddie he must have been, as he 
had little difficulty in pinning the Philo

usual bout was one Guy Allen Beaver, 
also of wrestling fame. Mr. Beaver was 
equipped with a microscope for close 
decisions, a blackjack for self-defense, 
and half a gallon of Sloan's liniment, 
good for man or beast. 

The quartette again appeared, this 
time singing "I'm Listening," in which 
Lester Krone had a solo part. Mr. Krone 
put lots of feeling into his lines, which 
gained for him a thunder of applause 
from the delighted multitude. 

Then the meeting was turned toward 
business matters, which were dispatched 
with the usual precision and execution.

meeting alive for some time afterward

was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

work of this type. Once more the col-

Coaches Metoxin And Frock,

Make Speeches 

In a recent special chapel program the 
student body and faculty paid tribute to 
"Jerry" Frock's scrappy Blue and White 
gridders who finished the 1934 season in 
a blaze of glory on Thanksgiving Day. 

Dr. Lynch presided at the assembly 
and introduced as speakers the coaches, 
"Jerry" Frock and "Chief" Metoxin, the 
football student manager, Frank Culla- 
ther, and the co-captains, Rust and 

In order to save the footballers con- 
siderable embarrassment, the coaches re- 
served their personal remarks until a 
later date and confined their remarks to 
an expression of their appreciation of 
the support given by the band and an 
expression of their regret that the sup- 
port of the student body was not what 
it might have been. 

Manager Cullather, besides punning 
his way to popularity and keeping the 
audience howling, also expressed the 
hope that student support would be 
greatly improved upon during the com- 
ing basketball season. 

Co-captains Rust and Smith stated that 
their four years in Lebanon Valley foot- 
ball had been greatly enjoyed and that 
it is with sincere regret that they doff 
their Blue and White outfits. 

The student body cheered and ap- 
plauded their acclaim of the gridders and 
paid especial tribute to ten seniors whose 
absence will be keenly felt when the 1935 
squad assembles. This group of ten in-

One of the most interesting and infor-

presented on Monday morning by Doctor 
Rex Hersey, head of the industry de-

in his subject, "Germany," since he has 
ju°t returned from a visit to that coun- 
try where he wrote a book about the 
condition of German railway employees, 
and made a study of the economic situa- 
tion in general. 

First of all, he showed Germany's re- 
sentment to the attitude of the other 
countries and their unjust denunciation 
of Germany's part in the World War. 
Also, the discontinuation of the exchange 
of German college graduates for those 
of other countries for certain set periods 
Is causing dissatisfaction among college 
graduates there. Of these, 100,000 to 
120,000, many of them Ph.D.'s, are un-

high literary merit, which are always 
good entertainment, and which are emi-

It is doubtless true that this particular 
play has not the literary qualities that 
we usually find in Shaw^the characteri- 
zation is weak, the plot flimsy, the moti- 
v/don absurd, and the individual lines 
without the brilliance and the pointed- 
ness that we have learned to expect in 
Shaw. These are the defects; to offset 
them one virtue which amply justifies 
the choice of the play for the occasion.

Disciple" is from first to last superbly 
"good stage." Even a group of ama- 
teur performers, many of whom have not 
even had amateur experience, given a 
limited amount of time in which to work 
up a play, given an occasion when" pop- 
ular appeal as reflected in box office re- 
ceipts must outweigh considerations of 
artistic effect; given these conditions, I 
say, the play chosen should be melodra- 
matic, popular in appeal, exciting as ,to 
plot (terms more or less synonymous), 
easily acted, and yet at the same time 
one not too low in the scale of literary 
values. "The Devil's Disciple" meets 
these requirements as if it had been 
written for the purpose. The plot is a 
sort of omnibus of all the stage tricks 
that have proved effective since the time 
of Plautus: the dashing and reckless 
young man, black sheep of the family, 
♦who turns out to be of sterling character 
in the end; the dramatic reading of the 
will; the sense of danger, the suspense, 
the arousal of patriotic sentiments with 
the approach of an invading army, and 
later the excitement and bustle of march- 
ing men and handsome officers; mistaken 
identity; Sidney Carton sacrifice; vain 
pleadings of the beautiful heroine; last- 
minute escape. . . . and all of these ele- 
ments so neatly dovetailed into each 
other that the play would almost carry 
itself regardless of the acting.

because of the lack of sufficient chape-

The traditional Intercollegiate dance 
which will be held under the auspices 
of the Penn State Club on December 
26 in the ballroom of the Penn Harris 
hotel at Harrisburg will again be pre- 
sented as a holiday diversion for stu- 
dents and alumni of many colleges 
and universities. 

Miss Grace Naugle has been in- 
vited to represent Lebanon Valley 
College at the dance as a member of 
an honorary committee and will be 
presented during the program. 

Feeling that the ball, which has 
been the outstanding social event of 
the Capitol City's Christmas season 
rince before the war, should be made 
a permanent affair, the Penn State 
Club of Harrisburg has taken it over 
from private hands this year. The 
dance will be more than fine enter- 
tainment, it will be a means for cre- 
ating greater understanding between 
ilumni and undergraduates of various 
jniversities and colleges.

With the advent of the Christmas 
holidays and the following celebration 
of New Year's day what resolutions and 
thoughts will be the product of this sea- 

After the numerous disillusions of 
Christmas tide— your hopes for a fur 
coat shattered by the parental gift of a 
good, sensible cloth garment, your de- 
sires for a car shot to pieces by the pre- 
sentation of a check for your second 
semester bill, your battle with the boy 
friend two days before Santa Claus' vis- 
it resulting in no gift, and the final dis- 
appointment of an unexciting visit home 
—the town band no longer comes out to 
greet you, and you are branded merely 
as "another college egg" with no signs 
of the longed-for popularity which you 
had expected— how will you react to the 
spirit of New Year resolutions and an 
improvement over the past season's con- 

One excellent resolution might help us 
financially as well as morally. Let your 
eyes rest for a second on that lengthy 
list of over-cuts. Are you included in 
that line-up of delinquents? Are you one 
of those students who must dig deeply 
into his pocket for several fines? Ah, 
here is life's opportunity to resolve never 
to pay a fine again, but to go to classes 
with an astounding regularity. As one 
wise parent suggests, "Get your money's 
worth, don't miss a class." Were per- 
fectly attended classes to become the 
general rule among the student group, it 
would cast the burden of cutting on the 
professors' shoulders, and in their hour 
of needed freedom it would rest upon 
them not to show up for a class period, 
much to the sorrow of their waiting audi- 
ence. Therefore, let us hereby resolve to 
cut classes less frequently— at least to 
stay within the limits set by our official 

We might profitably include a resolu- 
tion to buckle down to real study upon 

our return to the campus and to be more 
faithful in our college efforts. All of us 
are familiar with the popular song hit 
"Stay As Sweet As You Are," but the 
majority of us— with a few exceptions 
of course— could resolve to improve our 
dispositions and to be more sociable to 
our fellow students. 

With the closing thought that one 
should attempt some self improvement 
in the year 1935, permit me to close this 
column for the passing year of 1934.

er of chemistry and physics in the Balti- 
more Polytechnic Institute, died suddenly 
of a cerebral hemorrhage at his home in 
Baltimore in the morning of December 4 
at the age of 39 years. He was active 
in church work and in musical circles in 
Baltimore. He is survived by his wife, 
the former Hilda Colt, L. V. C, '17, and 
one daughter, Deborah Joan. The inter- 
ment was at Meshoppen, Pa.

throwing of her husband Peter and the 
coronation of herself as empress of Rus- 
sia. The story is fascinatingly interest- 
ing; there is plenty of good Russian 
vigor. One gets lost in the glorious de- 
scriptions of Russian court life, political 
intrigues, furs, and disgusting feasts. 

Calvin Reber reviewed H. G. Wells' 
"Experiments in Autobiography." The 
first part of the book is devoted to the 
author's expounding of his purpose in 
writing; this, he says, is to meet prob- 
lems. The book is so interesting one 
would think it is a novel. It seems that 
Wells is not writing for the publ'c be- 
cause he seems to care very little about 
the opinion of others. Concerning him- 
self, Wells declares that biography is a 
discernment between the value of primary 
and secondary problems. He uses quite 
a bit of variety in dealing with the vari- 
ous problems. Mr. Reber stressed the 
point that Wells was a fighter, and that 
'Sis pugnacious attitude was ever present 
while reading the book. Wells' meeting 
with Theodore Roosevelt was interesting 
because they were both fighters— fuinlers 
with exactly opposite objects. Roosevelt 
was the positive fighter— Wells was the 
negative fighter. The author presents his 
simple ideas and subjects with such wit 
and buoyancy that one can not resist 
reading the book. The work is a fight- 
ing book throughout. 

"The Romance of Leonardo da Vinci" 
by Merezhkovshii was discussed by Anne 
Butterwick. Life at the court of the Duke 
of Milan was the pivot of the book. The 
superstition of the court during this time 
was portrayed in numerous ways. Leo- 

nardo da Vinci represents the seeker af- 
ter truth, while his pupil represents the 
attempt to grasp ideals. The artist's life 
and eccentricities were brought out. The 
reviewer had the feeling that the artist 
was not really in the story but rather 
looking on. The book is filled with the 
brilliant court scenes, superstition and 
sensuousness of the period. 

An odd sort of book was next re- 
viewed. It was more than biography. 
Psychology was the outstanding point. 
Marion Leisey discussed Dr. Marks' 
"Genius and Disaster." This title means 
little to most people. The sub-title gives 
more light on the subject— "Study in 
Drugs and Genius." The author goes far 
into the chemistry of the mind in her dis- 
cussion. She takes a number of geniuses 
who have been drug and alcohol addicts 
and compares the effects that these have 
had on the works of these great figures. 
The reviewer discussed the author's life 
of Poe to illustrate Dr. Marks' biogra 
phical writing. The purpose the author 
had in mind in writing this sort of a book 
was to find a new literary criticism. She 
believes a critic should have a more sci- 
entific viewpoint. She believes there 
should be a scientific investigator to in- 
terpret our art. According to this psy- 
chologist, genius is sensitized proto- 
plasm. She goes deeply into the effects 
of drugs and alcohol on poetry and de- 
fends the man who is a drug addict. Al- 
cohol makes work have sharp, sensual 
pictures, opium makes a work hav.- gen- 
tl •, soft, weird pictures. 

Andre Maurois' "Ariel" was reviewed 
by Helen Earnest. This is the life of the 
poet, Shelley. The title fits the poet 
well. He is usually presented to us as a 
delicate, tripping, fairy sort of man— an 
Ariel. Through the affairs of Shelley's 
life his views political and social are 
brought out. His radical actions which 
shocked England are frankly d-scussed 
in Maurais' book. There is reference to 
the strong friendship which existed be- 
tween Byron and Shelley. The book is 
simply written and is quite accurate. 

Kotty McAdam discussed the "auto- 
biography of Frank Lloyd Wright." 
Mr. Wright, like Mr. Wells, is aiso a 
fighter. Wright is fighting desperately 
for modernism. He is thoroughly modern 
through and through. The author is an 
architect. His work has been the very 
last word in modernism. He built the 
Imperial Hotel in Japan which is the only 
building that has been able to weather 
the earthquakes. The book itself is mod- 
ern. The illustrations, the printing, and 
the cover are all unique. 

Plans for the next meeting were dis- 
cussed. The meeting will be held the 
third Tuesday in January. The 
for discussion will be reviews, cartoons, 
and current magazines. "Ted" Loos 
will be the chairman for this meeting. 

What is this thing called love? If you 
know, kindly enlighten some of our young 
and gretn freshmen gals. Perhaps .it's a 
bluff but they claim that they don't know 
what it's all about. Maybe thars more 
truth then poetry in them thar lines. 

George Smelser enjoyed his sojourn 
at Gettysburg. On the way back our 
hero in speaking of the lecturers said, 
"Boy, those men were illiterate; they 
were the smartest men I ever heard." 
Figure it out for yourself. 

"In her first passion woman loves her 

In all the others, all she loves is love." 


Cam pes Cuts 

We hear that some of the fair young 
damsels in North Hall placed some tacks 
in the cushion on Anna Mary Herr's 
chair. The girl who goes for "that man- 
ly physique" found them and posted a 
notice that the owner should call for her 
tacks. The culprit or culprits, took Anna 
Mary at her word, and while she was 
absent returned and left a note thanking 
her for keeping the tacks warm after re- 
placing their weapons in the cushion. 
That's gratitude! 

Barney Mentzer bought one of those 
ball-shooting games as a Christmas pre- 
sent for his nephew. His roommates, 
Hauck and Denton, pleaded with him to 
"just try it out" but, "Neggie" was 
loathe to do it. Finally after much per- 
sistence on their pait he weakened and 
decided to just ""try it once." At this 
moment Holtzman, Needy, and Gon- 
gloff walked in and officially challenged 
the occupants of room 6 to a champion- 
ship match. The contest began and ran 
to the wee hours with the seniors win- 
ning to the tune of 50,600 against 50,- 
558. Each man gave his all for the fair 
name of his room. The injured are ex- 
pected to be in shape by vacation. 

While at Gettysburg on the famous 
shield winning Y. M. C. A. convention 
several of the L. V. C. delegates found 
one of their schoolmates' cars parked in 
the square of the town. They proceeded 
to decorate the car in appropriate fash- 
ion and finished by tying "Diana" to a 
lamp post. The owner of the victimized 
automobile wisEes to publicly announce 
that he knows the despoilers and will 
take steps. 

The fellows in the Dorm know that 
Christmas is coming. Last week they 
were implored to purchase pictures as 
gift . and this week Palatini and company 
have been making life miserable for them 
by high pressuring them into buying this, 
or that for the "sweet young thing" back 
home. What a life. All we seem to get 
are ties. 



C. Sponaugle Elected 
Captain of Coming 
L. V. Football Team 


And so to basketball. 

"Chief" Metoxin's call for candidates 
brought a response from fifteen court as- 
pirants, including several veterans of 
last year's varsity squad and several 
members of the 1934 freshman aggrega-

Recipients of the Awards 

"Stew" Barthold, leading scorer last 
iscason and captain of this year's squad, 
reported for practice entirely recovered 
from his late-summer illness and "rarin' 
to go." 

There are six other veterans returning 
from last year's varsity outfit. These six 
are "Bill" Smith, "Smoky" Rust, "Grap" 
Miller, "Pat" Patrizio, and Coda and 
Boyd Sponaugle. 

Charles Kinney, Paul Billett, Clair 
Snell, and John Speg, all consistent per- 
formers on last year's frosh outfit, loom 
as senior threats to the safety of veteran 
performers' starting positions. 

In addition to these courtsters, several 
new men who have plenty of court ex- 
perience reported for workouts. This 
group included Art Heisch, Dick Ax, 
"Danny" Bartolet, and Norman Lazin. 

From these prospects, a formidable 
quintet should be developed, which 
should give other members of the East- 
ern Pennsylvania Collegiate League 
plenty of trouble. 

The 1934 Blue and White team closed 
the season all even in the league, win- 
ning six games and losing the same num- 
ber. The sole non-league contest result- 
ed in a 35-34 reverse at the hands of 

The 1935 schedule does not include 
any non-league opponents. There are 
twelve games listed, two each with Drex- 
el. F. & M., Gettysburg, Muhlenberg, 
Ursinus, and Albright.

ity are both scientifically unsound and 
dangerous. He also was unfavorably dis- 
posed to their restriction in personal free- 
dom of speech and press. As a contrast 
he described the policy of Frederick the 
Great who gained popularity and ap- 
proval by inviting frank criticism. He 
disparaged the methods of railroad offi- 
cials in starting political fights among the 
employees so they would lose sight of 
heir own interests. 

There are several good points, how- 
ever, on this subject. A man who has 
worked for 25 years or more cannot be 
fired. Of the 5,500,000 unemployed be- 
fore Hitler's reign, there are now ap- 
proximately 2,400,000. About 1,500,000 
were naturally taken on, but the rest are 
forced upon the industries that are mak- 
ing a certain amount of profit. They 
have a stringent industrial code, with 
definitely fixed wages, causing the work- 
ers to trust Hitler more and more. An- 
other defect is the lack of legal protec- 
tion for petty industrialists, shop-keepers 
and tRe little middle-class group. It is 
also difficult for them to earn a living 
because of the impossibility of increas- 
ing prices. 

There are many problems which the 
new government has to face. First is the 
problem oT leadership. First Hitler ap- 
points a group of nominees, the most 
popular of whom is then elected. Boys 
begin to serve the party from earliest

youth without pay, and after a certain 
number of years they are taken into real 
service. Another problem is that of war. 
He stated that Germany is not seeking 
a war, but the great population that is 
sought, might necessitate one. Mean- 
while the youths are being excellently 
trained, both mentally and physically. 
To prove that Germany has no immedi- 
ate desire for war, he showed that their 
present iron imports are less than those 
of 1932. Moreover, in the midst of such 
hostile neighbors, out of defense Ger- 
many is forced to arm to a certain ex- 
tent. The last problem discussed was 
their economic future. There are twenty 
million people too many, and very little 
raw material. All their iron ore must be 
brought from Alsace-Lorraine. 

However, at least forty per-cent of the 
people are fanatically behind Hitler in 
his four-fold aim: unity, nationalism, 
strong and able government, and broth- 
erhood. Some of these are not yet rea- 
lized, while others are over-emphasized 
at present. 

He ended his highly appreciated lec- 
ture with a plea for constructive, not de- 
structive criticism, and with a view to 
replacing this system with one more fit- 
ted for the people and the times.

recuperate from the severe shock of the 
"tickling" situation into which they had 
been introduced earlier in the evening. 

During the intermission, a novel floor 
show under the— well, say capable— di- 
rection of Mr. Krone, Thurmont, Md., 
had its incipiency in this locality. The 
first selections were two delicious. — I 
mean, delightful — numbers by a vocal 
trio consisting of Messrs. Sausser, Krone, 
and Roth, which were received with 
rousing, lusty cheers and several well- 
directed "scents" (from the audience, of 
course). "Ernie" Koch continued with 
two of his inimitable arrangements for 
the keyboard on the grand piano which 
usually remains in the gym as a parking 
place for gym shirts, sweaters, and other 
excess clothing usually worn before and 
after a basketball game. Next, "Crony" 
presented Mr. Hatz and Mr. Sausser of 
Annville and Schuylkill Haven respec- 
tively, who strung their way deliciously 
— dern it, I mean delightfully,— through 
two popular numbers. The final feature 
was the celebration of the ten millionth 
presentation in his own style of "Goofus" 
by Bob Sausser. This rendition was ably 
supported by one Miss Earley, whose 
loyalty by expression of applause abet- 
ted the struggling fiddler to grope his 
way through.

the Devil's Disciple, played his part with 
a dash and heartiness that contrasted 
well against the sombre backgrounds of 
decadent New England Puritanism in 
which goodness had become mere self- 
denial, and piety consisted in drawing a 
long face— a practice which the New 
Eng landers found particularly useful in 
horse-trading. It is only against this 
background of Puritanism that one can 
adequately appreciate the key speech of 
the play: 

"I knew from the first that the Devil 
was my natural master and captain and 
friend. I saw that he was in the right, 
and that the world cringed to his con- 
queror only through fear. I prayed se- 
cretly to him; and he comforted me, and 
he saved me from having my spirit brok- 
en in this house of children's tears. I 
promised him my soul, and swore an 
oath that I would stand up for him in 
this world, and stand by him in the next. 
That promise and that oath made a man 
of me. From this day this house is his 
home; and no child shall cry in it: this 
hearth is his altar; and no soul shall ever 
cower over it in the dark evenings and 
be afraid." 

That is a speech to set beside the simi- 
lar utterances of Goethe's, Faust and By- 
ron's Manfred; and if this speech of the 
Devil's Disciple suffers by the compari- 
son, it is because the revolt in this case 
is not against God so much as against 
the Puritan's conception of God, and 
because Shaw was not so much con- 
cerned with writing a philosophical trea- 
tise as with writing a good play. Krone, 
as a mock-heroic Faust, gave us good 
entertainment; and that, we take it, was 
Shaw's first concern. 

Jane Shellenberger, as the representa- 
tive of Puritanism, carried well what was 
perhaps the most difficult role in the cast. 
It was a repellant part she had to play, 
in which the outward forms of dead 
Puritanism were unable to grace "the 
bitter and fierce pride"; and yet Miss 
Shellenberger made us see that the heart 
within still lived, and made us respect 
and even pity that heart, shriveled and 
embittered after years of vain self-denial. 

Robert Spohn, as the mild New Eng- 
land parson who becomes the pistol- 
shooting patriot in time of national cri- 
sis, transformed himself with a sudden- 
ness and dramatic intensity that quite 
startled the audience. The part of his 
wife, a woman whose heart veered un- 
certainly amid the storms of war, was 
creditably performed by Louise Shearer. 
Tune Gingrich shelved ability far beyond 
that which her part as Essie demanded. 
Robert Sholter played a comic character 
part with contagious, good-natured hu- 
mor. John Muth was a quaint old coun- 
try squire meticulous about legal phrase- 
ology and his spectacles. Of the officers 
the best were Howard Heffner, who

gave an interesting and thought-provok- 
ing interpretation of the famous General 
Burgoyne; and Richard Rader, the ser- 
geant, whose cockney dialect would pass 
at Billingsgate or Smithfield. Others who 
helped make the play possible were Cal- 
vin Reber. Samuel Harnish, Paul Her- 
shey, Fred Gruber, Virginia Britton, An- 
na Erdman, Richard Huber, Victor Fri- 
dinger, Vernon Hemperly, Henry Kar- 
cher. Raymond Patrizio— indeed the play 
involved in one way or another the co- 
operation of almost every member of the 
junior class. A special word of appre- 
ciation should go to Louise Gillan, cos- 
turner and chairman of the play commit- 
tee; to Miller Schmuck, head property 
man; and to Harold Phillips, stage tech- 
nician,— all three of whom did work that 
wai not the less valuable because it could 
not receive the plaudits of the people on 
the other side of the footlights. To all 
the juniors and to Dr. Wallace our 
thanks for an evening of rare good fun.

The history of the movement to care 
for the mentally deficient was most in- 
teresting. Dr. Holmer stressed the re- 
cent progress and the new institutions 
such as Child Guidance Clinics. He 
spoke of the new ideas to bring down

In conclusion, Dr. Holmer spoke of 
the necessity that the college student 
realize that he has an emotional and an

is essential for a well-rounded mental and 
physical life.
